Fayetteville Technical Community College, also referred to as FTCC or FayTech, is a public, state-supported, two year, comprehensive community college serving Fayetteville and Cumberland counties in North Carolina. The institute is located adjacent to Fort Bragg, NC. Its main purpose is to provide affordable general education, vocational training, college transfer and continuing education programs to the students.

The Fayetteville Technical Community College Foundation, Inc. was established in 1984 to support the development of the college and its various programs and activities. The foundation presents scholarships and other resources for students, and upholds the academic environment of the College. Apart from the main campus, there are three off-campus sites: the Spring Lake campus, Horticulture Education Center, and the Fort Bragg Center.


Accreditation is granted by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to grant associate degrees, diplomas and certificates. Since 1961, the college has provided high quality education to the military.
