Tuition and Acceptance Rate
- In 1969, the community college system was established by the Nevada State Legislature. In 1971, Governor Mike O'Callaghan dedicated Western Nevada Community College as one of three community colleges in the Community College Division of the Nevada System of Higher Education. In 1979, the Board of Regents split Western Nevada Community College and established Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC). TMCC became the fourth community college within the Nevada System of Higher Education. Truckee Meadows Community College is continually growing and finding new ways to prepare students for the real world. Offering academic and university transfer, occupational training, career enhancement workshops and classes just for fun, TMCC is the fastest growing college in northern Nevada. TMCC serves over 12,000 students with programs leading to associate degrees and certificates in more than 40 academic and occupational areas. TMCC's Dandini Campus houses the administrative functions of the college as well as a wide variety of academic and occupational programs. Students have access to a wide variety of student services on the main campus, including the Elizabeth Sturm Library, open computer laboratories, career and job placement advisement, drop-in child care, academic assistance from The SOURCE and Writing Center, cultural awareness workshops and special events.
