Tacoma Community College is one of the nation’s top 100 community colleges for student certificate and degree completion, according to Community College Week.

Last year, TCC awarded 800 Program Certificates and 1200 Associate Degrees. Of similar schools in the U.S., TCC ranks 82nd in the country for certificate attainment, including Associate Degrees and Program Certificates, the publication reported.

Like many other community colleges, all students can earn certificates along with degrees, and many career training programs are structured so that students earn certificates that will help them obtain employment in a chosen field as they work toward degree attainment.
