My experience at Tarrant County College was exceptional. I loved the small classroom settings, making learning more personal and comprehensive. The teachers at Tarrant County College love what they do and teach as though they want each student to succeed in life. The teachers make the curriculum fun and easy to learn, keeping each student engaged and participating. The campus is always clean and pleasant. Tarrant County College offers many resources and tools for students to use to help maximize their learning. I love how low tuition is at Tarrant County College, making it easy for students to pay for tuition without taking out a loan. The only thing that I wish was different at Tarrant County College is their lack of a Cosmetology program, other than that I definitely recommend this school!

To simply sum up my time at TCC, I will say that everything moved quickly for me because of the motivating push I had from the faculty and my professors. I was able to attend TCC soon after high school and I was overjoyed with how inexpensive an experience it was – one of the biggest benefits to attending a community college, you won’t leave with any debt. The diversity at TCC was unfathomable and just something to really step back and take in and appreciate. Sometimes people will try to make you feel as though you are a cop out for attending a community college and you’re not really getting the full experience, but don’t let them lie to you; TCC makes it quick, easy, and affordable for everyone, and who can argue with that?!
I spent my first year in college at Tarrant County College. I feel that Tarrant County College is average in most areas. The one area that is above average is the cost per hour. I was able to complete my first year with absolutely no debt. A community college is a great transition between high school and a university. Tarrant County College has four different campuses. Each campus is easy to get to and offers many types of programs. They have a variety of course times including weekend courses. It would be an excellent choice for those on a budget!
