TTC students draw on knowledge from a broad range of disciplines to develop the communication and critical thinking skills that are fundamental to lifelong learning.
TTC further promotes economic development through continuing education courses; customized education and training for business, industry and government; and a variety of employment training programs.
TTC is committed to being accessible and responsive to community needs. To foster student success, TTC provides developmental education and comprehensive student services. In addition to traditional instruction, TTC’s flexible course offerings and alternative delivery methods, including online instruction, enable more members of the community to pursue higher education.
