Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) is a community college located in the state of Texas.

TVCC operates four campuses serving the Texas counties of Anderson, Henderson, and Kaufman, located southeast of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex:
*The Henderson County Campus, which also serves as TVCC's headquarters, is located in Athens.
*The Anderson County Campus is located in Palestine.
*The Kaufman County Campus is located in Terrell.
*The TVCC Health Science Center is located in Kaufman. This campus (located adjacent to Presbyterian Hospital of Kaufman) is dedicated specifically to healthcare courses (general courses must be taken at one of the other campuses in the TVCC system), and operates a distance learning program for the University of Texas at Arlington's RN to BSN program.

History

TVCC was founded in 1946 as Henderson County Junior College in Athens, the county seat, and adopted its current name in September 1986, which was taken from the Trinity River which bisects the region.

TVCC would begin its expansion to a multi-site campus in 1969 when it began to offer courses at a nearby Texas Department of Criminal Justice unit. In 1972 TVCC started offering courses in Palestine (the Anderson County seat), and in 1975 would open a separate campus facility three miles north of town. In 1973 TVCC started offering courses in Terrell (its first expansion into neighboring Kaufman County) and would open a separate campus facility there in 1986. Finally, in 1983 TVCC would open its first specialized campus, the TVCC Health Science Center in Kaufman (the Kaufman County seat).
