Tri-County Community College is an accredited, comprehensive, public-supported, two-year, post-secondary institution. The roots of Tri-County Community College date back to 1964, when the North Carolina State Board of Education approved the Tri-County Industrial Education Center to operate as a part of the State Department of Community Colleges. In the 1970s, the Appalachian Regional Commission provided grants to renovate and construct three buildings on the Murphy campus of the college, renamed Tri-County Community College. Tri-County awards associate’s degrees and certificates.
