Tarrant County College (TCC) or Tarrant County College District (TCCD) is a community college serving Fort Worth and other cities in Tarrant County, Texas, providing degree programs toward an Associate of Arts, an Associate of Science, an Associate of Applied Science, or an Associate of Arts in Teaching. As of 2008, the institution was ranked as the sixth largest in Texas among community colleges and universities with student enrollment for credit hours of 150,000. Five physical campuses, a virtual campus (TCC Connect) and a centralized office make up the TCC District.[1]

Originally called Tarrant County Junior College (TCJC), the school began on July 31, 1965, after voters approved a bond election for the formation of a junior college district. In 1967, the South Campus was the first campus to open in south Fort Worth; in 1968, the Northeast Campus was built in Hurst. A third campus, Northwest, was added in 1976, in northwest Fort Worth. In 1996, the Southeast Campus was built in Arlington. The fifth, Trinity River Campus, opened in downtown Fort Worth fall of 2009. In 1999, the College District decided to drop the "Junior" from the college name.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of TCCD includes all of Tarrant County.[2].

Albert II, Prince of Monaco was made an Honorary Professor of International Studies at Tarrant County College in 2000.[3]
