“As I prepare to walk across the stage and receive my high school diploma, I could see my future goals within my grasp. After 4 years of dedication, I am ready to embark on a journey through college to turn my dream of becoming an Aerospace Engineer into a reality. I can now charge ahead in my studies, saving time and money, as well as prepping myself for my dream career.”

“Tallahassee Community College (TCC) is located in the capitol of Florida and sits within a short driving distance to two major universities, Florida State University and Florida Agricultural & Mechanical University.  The College serves a diverse student population with almost 50% of the student population coming from outside its local three county service area.  Over 70% of TCC students transfer to a college or university in Florida.  TCC also provides in-demand workforce training along with stackable credentials and two year degrees that prepare students for jobs in public safety, healthcare, information technology, business and building construction just to name a few.”
