Titan Survey

Titans, we are always looking for ways to better the College. Please answer the following questions to let your voice be heard!
https://forms.gle/RiBCfknqBsuX6QYY6

iPhone Users

Unfortunately, the company our Terra State mobile app was hosted with has lost iPhone support, and our app will no longer be available for iPhones. The app was created as a short-term plan for mobile users until we launched a fully-responsive Terra.edu. With the website update this past January, our site is now mobile friendly, and many of the same information on the app can be viewed on your phones, as well. We apologize for the inconvenience, and will continue to explore potential options for the future.

Book Voucher Change

The book voucher process changed in the Summer of 2019, effecting all future semesters. If you created a new voucher for the Summer 2019 semester, it will roll forward to future semesters. If you need to create a voucher for the Fall 2019 semester, proceed to the Transfer of Excess Financial Aid form under the ‘Student’ tab in your Banner Self-Service (click here for more detailed instructions). Any voucher prior to Summer 2019 semester has been zeroed out.

Beginning August 14th for the Fall 2019 semester, once you have created the book voucher, after 12 p.m. on the following business day you will see a line indicating ‘Bookstore Charge’ under Banner Self-Service > Student > Student Account > Account Detail for Term. Having a ‘Bookstore Charge’ means your voucher is in the bookstore and you can view how much is available in your account.

OhioLink Update

The library at Terra State Community College will no longer ask for your Social Security Number to request items from OhioLINK.  Instead, you will need to enter your T# (letter T followed by 8 digits).

Where do you find your T#?

  • Students: go to Banner Self Service

    • click on Student Tab
    • click the Student Records link
    • click on View Student Information and the T# is in the upper right corner.
  • Staff:  Look on paystub

Title IV Consent Completion Reminder

Do you have your Title IV Consent completed so that it clears your account charges (ex: tuition/fees, Installment Payment Plan, housing charges, etc.) if you have Financial Aid?  Find it on Banner Self Service > Student Tab > Student account > left side forms, Title IV Consent.  If you did the Transfer of Excess Financial Aid for your book voucher, you already completed the Title IV Consent.

#15tofinish

Have you thought about adding one more class to your fall schedule to help save money, get better grades, and stay on track to graduate?

15 is the number of credits you need to take each semester to graduate on time!

Statistics show that students who earn 15 credits per semester are more likely to finish college on time and earn better grades.

Of course, you can take less and still receive scholarships and funding. But taking 15 credits a semester (or 30 credits a year) accelerates your graduation, saves money overall, and increases your chances of achieving your personal and professional goals. Contact your Advisor today to schedule an appointment to discuss your options at 419.559.2345. Learn more at https://completecollege.org/strategy/15-to-finish/.
