Tarrant County College

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 2007 the college was ranked 6th largest in Texas among community colleges and universities with student enrollment for credit hours reaching 37,948. There are currently four campuses. 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 then in 1996 the last campus was built in Arlington and named the Southeast Campus. A fifth campus, currently under construction in downtown Fort Worth, is expected to open in Spring, 2010. The downtown campus has been designed by Bing Thom. 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. [Texas Education Code, Section 130.201, "Tarrant County Junior College District Service Area".]
