  • We keep college affordable, with low tuition for Texas residents and Yellow Ribbon Program School rates for out-of-state students

  • Veteran resources including a VetSuccess center on campus, along with staff and faculty that have a military connection and understand where you’ve been.

Central Texas College offers the value, convenience and flexibility of a community college and worldwide reach through distance learning and locations on or near military installations. 

Our beautiful Central Campus in Killeen offers a traditional college environment, while our locations across the world help service members, veterans and their family members achieve their educational goals. Students not located near one of our sites can continue with CTC through distance education.

CTC is a public, open-admission community college offering associate degrees and certificate programs in academic, professional and vocational/technical fields. We also help students transition from a two-year to a four-year degree through our many articulation agreements with four-year institutions nationwide.  

Central Texas College is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges to award associate degrees and certificates of completion. This gives you full confidence the courses you take at CTC will be eligible for federal financial aid programs and those courses will easily transfer to other colleges.
