Celebrating its 50th year in 2018, Tompkins Cortland Community College has grown from a tiny, upstart community college housed in an old high school to an integral part of the Tompkins and Cortland County communities located on a 220-acre rural campus in Dryden, New York.
The College is one of 30 community colleges in the State University of New York, and offers degrees and certificates in more than 40 academic programs including nursing, business administration, criminal justice, chemical dependency counseling, new media, sports management, culinary arts, sustainable farming and food systems, and liberal arts programs, including education and general studies. The College is known for constantly expanding the boundaries of what is possible for a community college: recent innovations include a restaurant, organic-practices farm, and a 10-acre solar array powering campus.
Perhaps more importantly, the College is known for its commitment to academic rigor and for its equally passionate commitment to providing the community support students need to succeed. With thousands of graduates in the area and throughout the country, we mean it when we say Your Community. Your College.
