The Florida College System is an extensive collection of Florida community colleges and universities. One of these colleges, the Tallahassee Community College, was commissioned by the government of Florida in the 1960s to provide a cost-effective post-secondary school option for the large number of Florida graduating high school seniors.
Because the Tallahassee Community College is an affiliate of the Florida College System, students are able to pursue degrees at other Florida institutions while taking courses at Tallahassee Community College. Students who achieve an associate’s degree at Tallahassee Community College may also transfer their credits easily to a four-year post-secondary institution that is affiliated with the Florida College System. This allows graduates of Tallahassee Community College to easily go on to pursue a bachelor’s degree or graduate degree.
