TCTC is accredited through the Southern Association of College and School's area (aka SACS). Do you ever wonder about what all goes into this process of being "affirmed"? The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges has very detailed documentation on the process. This isn't a brief process. There is an application process that can take up to two years. Initial accreditation is awarded for five years. Then the institution goes into a reaffirmation process which is detailed on the Accrediting Standards page. All in all, when you attend TCTC you can be assured that not only have we reviewed how our college performs but that other's in higher education have also looked at how we operate. Our Mission, Facts, and Stats page gives a multitude of information on how we review ourselves.
