On behalf of the students, staff, faculty, and administrators at Trinity River Campus, welcome! We invite you to come to our beautiful campus in the heart of downtown Fort Worth and experience both the friendliness of our campus and our commitment to student success.
Whatever your educational goals, the Trinity River Campus will support you. This spring our 8000+ students are enrolled in university transfer courses; a program in Sign Language Interpreting that leads to professional licensure; a new program in library technology; and seven programs in health care.
TCC’s Nursing program and these Allied Health programs – Respiratory Care, Physical Therapist Assistant, Radiologic Technology, Surgical Technology, and Long Term Care Administration – have homes at the Trinity River Campus East Center for Health Care Professions. Health Information Technology is also a vital healthcare program at Trinity River Campus. All these programs lead to licensures and to careers in healthcare.
Success in college often depends on more than courses and professional programs. Research shows that students’ connections with other students, with clubs, and with faculty and staff increase their chance for successful completion. That is why Student Development Services deliberately plans events to connect students through clubs and leadership initiatives. Service and Community Engagement, one of the busiest offices on campus, helps students find service opportunities in the community, and our growing dual credit program gives high school students both high school and university-parallel college credit. We also have dual credit for home schooled students.
Continuing Education offers courses ranging from Senior Education weight training to QuickBooks Accounting to basics of computing. CE also offers workforce development and literacy courses, and we are especially proud to offer the GED preparation courses and testing in both English and Spanish. Graduates of our recently developed CE program for ophthalmic assistants are already employed in the metroplex.
Like our sister campuses at Tarrant County College, Trinity River Campus is dedicated to helping all students in our county – and especially low income students and students of color – to achieve the American dream of higher education. Our faculty, advisors, and staff work to help students establish their goals and the pathways to achieving them. New to the Trinity River Campus’s dedication to student success are trained peer advisors, students who work to help others succeed. Also new is the student Oath of Commitment, developed and adopted by our students as their personal commitments to educational success.
Please join us. You’ll discover that we practice our belief that education changes lives. And our schedules are flexible, whether you want weekdays, evenings, or week-ends.
