About TCC
Innovation and Excellence at TCC

Since 1966, Tallahassee Community College has offered high-quality post-secondary education for the citizens of Leon, Gadsden and Wakulla counties, along with students from throughout the state, nation and abroad. With excellent academic support and classroom facilities and Web-based classes, TCC offers a variety of instructional methods to ensure student success.

Academics
TCC is recognized, annually, in Community College Week’s Top 100 colleges for the number of associate degrees awarded. In June 2010, TCC ranked 15th among two-year institutions nationwide in the total number of associate degrees awarded. Additionally, TCC was ranked 11th nationally in the number of degrees awarded to African-Americans.

TCC’s faculty provide a strong foundation for its many graduates moving on to Florida State, Florida Agricultural & Mechanical universities and other four-year institutions. Nearly 75 percent of TCC’s A. A. graduates transfer into the State University System within a year, the highest percentage in the Florida community college system.

TCC works closely with its University Partners: Flagler College, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Barry University and Saint Leo University. Each school offers students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree without leaving the TCC campus.
Faculty Excellence

TCC’s faculty is committed to learning, student success and quality improvement. Many of our faculty members have received recognition from state and national organizations as being the finest in their field.

TCC’s traditionally strong faculty – rated twice the national average in doctoral degrees and years of experience – provides a strong foundation for its many graduates moving on to four-year colleges and universities.
Accreditation

Tallahassee Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the associate degree. Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call 404-679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Tallahassee Community College.

Programs in Dental Assisting and Hygiene, Emergency Medical Services Technology and Respiratory Care are also examined and accredited by specialized accrediting associations.

Additionally, the College provides cooperative programs with other accredited institutions which lead to certain associate degrees and programs of shorter duration which lead to certificates. Courses completed at the College may be transferred to other institutions. In general, credits will not be lost if they are applicable to the curriculum the student plans to pursue at the receiving institution and if grade level requirements are met.

Affordability and Flexibility
TCC’s in-state tuition and fees are $85.85 per credit hour (Spring 2011), significantly lower than those at public and private colleges and universities. Out-of-state tuition and fees are $303.35 per credit hour (Spring 2011).

In 2008-09, TCC awarded more than $40 million in scholarships.

TCC provides day and evening classes at a variety of locations as well as online and in a variety of express sessions within each term.
Student Support Services

TCC offers several college readiness programs such as the TCC Connection and the Summer Education Academy. TCC Connection and the Summer Education Academy are summer programs designed to help high school students who score below college level on the Florida College Entrance Placement Test (CPT). The programs also hope to set the stage for students’ subsequent improved performance in high school.

TCC prides itself on its support services for those with disabilities. We provide accommodations such as note takers, tutors, interpreters, untimed testing, an adaptive computer lab and individualized pre-registration assistance are available.

The College Reach-Out Program, the TCC Foundation and programs such as Take Stock in Children and the Challenge Scholarship provide a vision for local students wishing to include college in their futures.
Student Union/One Stop Center

TCC is committed to making all programs, services and activities accessible to our students. The One Stop Center houses student services such as admissions, student advising, career assistance and financial aid. In addition, student clubs and organizations, the College bookstore and a food court are available in the Student Union/One Stop Center.

Community Involvement
Through the College’s Center for Workforce Development’s wide-range of programs- including providing performance solutions and services to regional businesses, government agencies and nonprofits, Pat Thomas Law Enforcement Academy’s (PTLEA) public safety training programs, community development and preparing students for the GED exam- the College strives to provide outstanding services to the community. Workforce Development programs are delivered on the main campus and in TCC’s service centers throughout the region.

TCC’s students, faculty and staff take an active interest in our community by participating in various community activities. The College and its Office of Student Volunteerism frequently participates in a number of service projects sponsored by area community service agencies.
Tallahassee: An ideal place to live and learn

With upwards of 60,000 college students from across the country and abroad attending Florida State University, Florida A&M University and TCC, Florida’s capital city is a melting pot of cultures and ideas.

With beautiful canopy roads, historic locations, the Gulf of Mexico, hiking and biking trails, and more, the natural beauty of our area is unsurpassed. Add to it diverse cultural events including FSU’s Seven Days of Opening Nights, which attracts a kaleidoscope of world-renowned artists and performers, the African Caribbean Dance Theatre’s Annual Florida African Dance Festival, the North Florida Hispanic Association’s Hispanic Festival and the Gadsden County Latino Fest. Tallahassee is an ideal place to live and learn.
