Accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Southwest Tennessee Community College maintains two campuses and four centers. There are three associate degrees offered: associate in applied science, associate of arts, and associate of science. The school also offers technical certificates, courses for non-degree students, continuing education, and distance education.
Distance Education and Instructional Technology provides students the opportunity to obtain higher education in a more flexible learning environment. Here several options for learning are offered, including online course, web-assisted classes, split courses, and telecourses.
Online courses are just that, and do not require students to step foot into a classroom. Web-assisted classes involve meeting in the classroom with assignments completed online. Split courses include face-to-face instruction as well as online learning. Telecourses are classes based on a series of television programs which teach concepts and cover the textbook material.
