For those students selected, an introduction to the course will be held on Wednesday, September 11th  @ 6:30pm in Bauer Hall 330.   

Additional Information

TCCP consulting teams have historically consisted of 3 – 5 students, and students have been and will continue to be able to apply as either an individual or as part of a group (Up to 3 students may apply). This semester, we are hoping to slightly reduce the average size of our Taylor teams, and thus if you apply as part of a group, we ask you to limit your group size to four members.  If you apply as part of a group, know that ALL team members must complete an individual application. Students that successfully complete a TCCP project will receive 3 credit hours for the course.
