TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (June 26, 2013) – Community College Week has released its annual Top 100 analysis, and among 2-year colleges, Tallahassee Community College is ranked #1 nationally in graduating students with A.A. degrees, also known as transfer/general studies degrees.

In the 2013 report, TCC earned a national ranking in multiple categories alongside other 2-year institutions:
  • Ranked 1st in the nation in Associate in Arts (A.A.) Degrees (degree used to transfer to 4-year institutions)—referred to as “Liberal Arts and Sciences, General Studies, & Humanities” degrees in the report.  TCC awarded 3,006 A.A. degrees.
