What is TC?

Full form of TC is a transfer certificate, it is a document that is issued by the school or college that allows the student to take admission in some other school and college that’s why we call it as a transfer certificate. It is basically for the transfer of the student from that particular school to another.

If you are planning to change your school or college then it is necessary that you get your TC from that school, and for that purpose, you need to write an application to the principal of that school or college requesting them to issue your TC.

Important Tips Before Writing An Application For Transfer Certificate

As I have already told, TC is issued by school or colleges that allow the student to take admission to any other school. The TC application letter is written to the principal of the school or college. Here are some important points that you can consider while writing an application for tc from college.

Is TC Important For Students?

YES, absolutely Tc is very important for every student who is planning to change his current school or college. TC allows you to take admission in any other educational institute. If you don’t have a transfer certificate then you can’t take admission to another school or college.

It is an very essential admission document. Without the transfer certificate letter, the students can not carry ahead their education to the next school.

Basic Reasons For A TC

There can be a number of reasons for a student to issue a TC from their school or college, but in most of cases, students leave their school because their father’s job gets posted to another city. For that reason, the parents ask for a TC from school so that their students can continue their studies.

There can be some other reasons too for a TC like after completion of a certain class like 10th or 12th. Like for example, to take admission in college after class 12th, you’ll be needing a tc.

So most of the time, a tc is wither written by students or their parents to the principal. Most of us will write the letter for transfer application in English but that is not necessary, you can write it any other language too like Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati depending upon the place you live.

Although the format for the application is going to remain the same no matter what language you are writing in.
