In 1947, Calhoun Community College was founded as the result of the consolidation of the Tennessee Valley State Technical School and John C. Calhoun State Junior College. The stated mission of the college is to be “an institution of excellence providing quality, innovative instruction through a responsive learning environment while promoting cultural enrichment and community development.”
CCC offers certificates and two-year associate’s degrees, which can be transferred into four-year degrees or directly into a career. Many courses are offered online, allowing students to earn degrees at least partly online. A few degrees and cretificates can be earned completely online.
