Originally called Tarrant County Junior College (TCJC), the school began on July 31, 1965, after voters approved a bond election for the formation of a junior college district.

In 1996, the Southeast Campus was built in Arlington. The fifth, Trinity River Campus, opened in downtown Fort Worth fall of 2009. In 1999, the College District decided to drop the “Junior” from the college name.

As defined by the Texas Legislature, the official service area of TCCD includes all of Tarrant County.
