    About Us Since opening its doors in 1965, Tacoma Community College has provided a high-quality, affordable education to more than 500,000 people. Serving Tacoma, Gig Harbor, the Key Peninsula, online students and the women's prisons, TCC educates about 11,000 students annually. Many TCC students are the first in their families to attend college, 58 percent receive financial aid, 13 percent have children, 42 percent are students of color, and 48 percent work while attending school. TCC has two campuses, the main campus in Tacoma and another in Gig Harbor. Situated northwest of Tacoma across the Narrows Bridge, the Gig Harbor campus offers credit and non-credit courses. Divided into 4 academic divisions (Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences; Health, Business & Professional Programs; Math, Science & Engineering; Communication & Transitional Studies) TCC is committed to developing and sustaining a vibrant educational environment where all students can thrive by providing educational opportunities such as learning communities, honors programming, undergraduate student research, bachelor of applied science degrees, and study abroad. TCC is 100 percent committed to student success, and promotes innovation to help students. Since launching its Open Educational Resources initiative in 2011, the college has saved students collectively more than $5 million on textbooks. Designated an Achieving the Dream Leader College, TCC provides a model for other schools seeking to engage students and boost completion rates. TCC is also one of 67 colleges selected nationally to participate in the Department of Education's Second Chance Pell pilot program, providing access to education for incarcerated individuals. Designated a Military Friendly CollegeĀ®, TCC is proud to serve Pierce County's military community. In fall 2018, the college opened a food pantry on campus to support students experiencing food insecurity and was recognized by the Harvard Kennedy School for its College Housing Assistance Program, a community partnership that helps students access affordable housing.
