Attention Juniors and Seniors Signing Up for TMCC Dual Credit Courses:

The student's name and birthdate need to be identical to the information the student provided when they applied to TMCC for admission. The form will be automatically sent to their high school counselor for approval. Failure to complete this process on time, may prevent you from enrolling in dual credit course in fall.

Attention Parents of Seniors:

Please take a picture and email a copy of all college acceptance and scholarship award letters to Lauren McBride as soon as possible.
Course Changes:

Thank you for submitting your Course Request forms to select your classes for next year. The school bases its course sections and class size counts on the number of requests received for each course. Therefore, it is imperative that your course requests demonstrate a commitment to the classes you chose. 

If you or your child are discussing a potential class change, please contact your counselor as soon as possible. Once sections are established by administration in spring, movement to other classes may be limited or impossible to avoid overcrowding in a particular class. Schedule change requests should be finalized prior to May 29th.  We highly encourage any course add/drops to occur prior to summer break. 

Counselors will not be available over summer, so any schedule change requests received after May 29th will not be reviewed until Tuesday, August 6th. Schedule changes will be completed on a drop-in basis beginning on Tuesday, August 6th.  Please understand that schedule changes will only be made for academic reasons, and not to accommodate teacher preferences.

In-Person Smallwood Multimedia Boot Camp Returns in 2021
June 14-18

About Smallwood
The Smallwood Multimedia Boot Camp, offered by the University Libraries at the University of Nevada, Reno, is an opportunity for current high school juniors/soon-to-be seniors from Washoe, and Douglas Counties, as well as students from Carson City, to receive concentrated, in-person instruction in video production, audio techniques, and media editing skills. The five-day boot camp runs from June 14-18, 2021. Students will develop quality projects and skills that can be added to digital portfolios for college applications and internship/job seeking. More information, including application instructions, can be found on the website

Virtual Production
This year, students will be introduced to a cutting-edge professional video effects technique called “virtual production” (VP). VP combines traditional cinema workflows with real-time digital 3D environments and green screen compositing. These techniques are similar to those used in professional Hollywood titles such as The Mandalorian and The Lion King (2019). Students selected for participation in the boot camp will have an incredible opportunity to experience all aspects of VP firsthand, giving them an introduction to the latest technology and techniques being used in the film and video industry. Additional skills to be learned include motion graphics, graphic design, 3D asset creation, lidar, photogrammetry, and MORE. 
Instruction will take place in the University Library's @One, located on the first floor of the University's Mathewson-IGT Knowledge Center and will be led by the award-winning multimedia production faculty. 

Application Instructions
High school seniors will be accepted into Smallwood Multimedia Boot Camp based on their application and a reference from a teacher or school administrator. We are looking for students with the greatest potential and interest in the field who will be committed to full participation in the boot camp. An ability to be admitted to the University of Nevada, Reno is required. Questions can be sent to Daniel Fergus

Applications and sample material must be received by Friday, May 14, 2021.
