All you need to know, in once place!

Serving Ark-La-Tex students for over 80 years, Texarkana College is firmly rooted in its community. TC offers more than 119 degrees and certificates of study with academic, vocational/technical, continuing education and workforce development classes available. Small class sizes help ensure that students get the individualized instruction and personalized learning that they deserve.

Texarkana College offers a quality education with one of the lowest tuition costs per credit hour at a Texas Community College.

TC Up-Close is an inspirational opportunity for prospective students to experience college life. Prospective students, after expressing interest in TC Up-Close, will be matched with a current Texarkana College student who has the same career goals. During the day, the student will attend college classes, visit the department of academic/career interest, eat lunch, meet with an enrollment advisor, and take a personalized tour of the campus.

Program goals:

  • Observe the collegiate experience that Texarkana College offers
  • Encourage students to identify career and academic interests
  • Help students gain awareness of the academic, technical, and personal skills required to be successful in their field of study
  • Build an understanding of the critical connections between school, work, and goal attainment
  • Foster relationships with our faculty and staff within their field of study.
