TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) - Tallahassee Community College has received a five-year grant that will allow the school to increase graduation rates and improve courses. 

The U.S. Department of Education awarded TCC the grant through the Title III Strengthening Institutions Program in support of TCC's project titled "A Framework for Success: Increasing Achievement through Multi-year Career Pathways."

TCC says that the award will allow programs such as student advising and "gateway" courses to improve exponentially. The school has identified barriers such as career planning that have stalled student completion of programs, according to TCC.

The director of the improvement projects will be Barbara Sloan, provost and vice president of academic affairs, who led the development of the proposal.
