Welcome to Tarrant County College Southeast Campus! For the past 26 years, TCC Southeast has been a vibrant part of Arlington, Mansfield, and Tarrant County.

In 2019, the taxpayers passed an $825 million bond program, with $125 million slated for the Southeast Campus. One new building will be devoted to academics and showcase the Culinary Arts, Dietetics, and Hospitality Management programs. The other will host the new Student Experience building. Once the new buildings are finished, the library is transformed into a Learning Commons, and the eastern wing of the campus is renovated, the project will be complete.

All in all, the campus will grow large enough to accommodate enrollment through 2030. The new buildings will account for about 100,000 square feet of new space and 234,000 square feet of renovated space.

With more than 10,000 students, plus four Early College High Schools, Southeast Campus has more educational opportunities for our students. Our newest certificates include Cybersecurity and Beverage Management programs. Along with our traditional college programs, we also have Community Education and Engagement. These programs include First Choice, Autism Spectrum, Senior Education, and Youth Enrichment. More than 500 students are engaged in the College for Kids program each summer.

At TCC Southeast, we strive to be the best community partner. We have several programs that engage the community, such as the VITA Tax Service, Stay the Course, Tarrant County Elections, and the Veterans Resource Center. In 2021, TCC Southeast won the prestigious Eduardo J. Padron Award for Institutional Transformation. The award is given annually by Campus Compact, a national coalition of colleges and universities committed to the public purposes of higher education.

As always, you are welcome to come out to the Southeast campus, speak with an advisor, and learn how we can assist you in your educational journey.

We look forward to seeing you on campus!

Bill Coppola, President
Tarrant County College Southeast
