Institutional Accreditation

Tallahassee Community College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate and baccalaureate degrees. 

Contact the Commission on Colleges at 1866 Southern Lane, Decatur, Georgia 30033-4097 or call (404) 679-4500 for questions about the accreditation of Tallahassee Community College.

Normal inquiries about the institution, such as admission requirements, financial aid, educational programs, etc., should be addressed directly to Tallahassee Community College and not to the Commission’s office. The Commission is to be contacted only if there is evidence that appears to support an institution’s significant noncompliance with a requirement or standard.
