TCC named one of the nation’s top community colleges for Hispanic students

Tarrant County College ranked #5 in the nation for total enrollment of Hispanic students at two-year schools, according to Hispanic Outlook on Education Magazine, which released its Top 25 Community Colleges for Hispanics list in the February issue.

Hispanic students comprised 35 percent of TCC’s enrollment in 2020, the year on which the rankings were based. Of the 43,000 students who enrolled at TCC that year, 14,990 were Hispanic. For decades, TCC has provided wide-ranging support to Hispanic students, including the Organization of Latin American Students – Texas Association of Chicanos in Higher Education and special events during Hispanic Heritage Month.

Additionally, TCC was ranked #7 in total number of degrees awarded. Of the more than 5,931 degrees awarded by TCC in 2020, 36 percent – 2,119 were granted – to Hispanic students.

The Hispanic Outlook on Education rankings are based on several factors, including the percentage of Hispanic students in attendance, total student enrollment, two-year schools awarding the most associate degrees to Hispanics and the percentage of Hispanics awarded associate degrees by a two-year institution. The rankings were determined using data from the National Center for Education Statistics and The Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System.

A national publication, Hispanic Outlook on Education Magazine provides education news, innovations, networking, resources and the latest trends impacting students from kindergarten through graduate school all while maintaining a unique Hispanic perspective.
