Discover Your Island

Viking Islander Program (VIP)


Good morning Anchor Islanders! 

It’s hard to believe, but we are already looking towards the Spring 2021 semester.  TAMU-CC anticipates posting the course schedule online on Monday, October 12 and opening registration on Monday, October 26.

Due to the health and safety measures already in place, Anchor program advisors will be meeting with students virtually.  All advising appointments will take place via WebEx or phone appointments.  Anchor program advisors will not be holding walk-in hours.  You can schedule an appointment through the Anchor online appointment scheduler, TimeTap (  Please don’t wait until the last minute to book your appointments because your Anchor program advisor’s time slots will fill quickly! 

This is an extremely busy time of year for the Anchor program advisors and their schedules will be booked with appointments back to back; they will not be able to fit students in on an emergency basis.  Please plan ahead.  One of the ways you can do this is by reviewing the helpful videos on the link below:


We look forward to helping you plan your next semester with us on the Island!
