Occupational Skills Achievement Award

Occupational skills achievement (OSA) awards enable students to receive recognition (not designated on transcripts) for entry-level employment or industry-recognized certification or licensure. TVCC has implemented stackable credentials that allow students to enroll in an occupational skills achievement award, which leads to a certificate of completion program and into the corresponding associate degree program. 

In order to be eligible for an occupational skills achievement (OSA) award, students must:

  1. Complete the prescribed curriculum for the OSA as outlined in this catalog.
  2. Complete TSI requirements, if applicable. While many CCs and OSAs are exempt from TSI requirements, consult with an academic advisor for accurate information regarding testing requirements.
