Texas Chiropractic College (TCC) is a private chiropractic college located in Pasadena, Texas. Founded in 1908, it is the fourth oldest chiropractic college in the United States.[1] TCC was originally located in San Antonio, Texas before moving in 1965 to Pasadena due to increased demands for a larger campus.[2]

Notable alumni[edit]

Alumni include Louisiana State Senator Gerry E. Hinton (1930-2000), a chiropractor in Slidell who worked to obtain chiropractic licensing in Louisiana. The legislation was signed in 1974 making Louisiana the last state to recognize the profession.[3]
