From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Tarrant County College (TCC) or Tarrant County College District (TCCD) is a public two year community college serving the Fort Worth area in Tarrant County, Texas and providing degree programs toward an Associate of Arts, an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Arts in Teaching. As of 2008 the institution was ranked as the sixth largest in Texas among community colleges and universities with student enrollment for credit hours of 39,596. There are currently four campuses and a fifth will open in the fall of 2009. Originally called Tarrant County Junior College (TCJC), the school began on July 31, 1965 after voters approved a bond election for the formation of a junior college district. In 1967 the first campus, the South Campus, opened in south Fort Worth and soon after in 1968, the Northeast Campus was built in Hurst. A third campus, Northwest, was added in 1976 in northwest Fort Worth and in 1996 the Southeast Campus was built in Arlington. The fifth, the Trinity River Campus, opened in downtown Fort Worth fall of 2009. In 1999 the College District decided to drop the "Junior" from the college name.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of TCCD includes all of Tarrant County.[1]
