Poplar Bluff’s Technical Career Center will continue to hold full accreditation.

The extension guarantees that adult student will continue to receive federal Title IV loans, grants and financial aid.

The process was needed after TCC the previous regional accrediting agency dissolved in 2014.

The National Council on Occupational Education granted the accreditation and it will remain effective for six years as long as annual benchmarks are met.

“I believe as an institution we have improved a lot of our processes that were previously known, but not necessarily followed in a structured manner or written in a course manual,” reflected Charles Kinsey, TCC director. “This high standard of documentation is designed to improve student success, and their ability to find gainful employment.”

Under the U.S. Department of Education, the COE requires institutions to maintain a program completion rate of at least 60 percent, a student placement rate in related industry or continued education of 70 percent, and a licensure pass rate of 70 percent if a license is required following graduation.
