About TVCC


Treasure Valley Community College - operating under the authority of Chapter 341 of the Oregon Revised Statutes - is committed to serving all constituents within its district and service area. The College opened in the fall of 1962. Classes were originally scheduled at Ontario High School during the late afternoon and early evening. The first TVCC commencement was held the following spring when students enrolled in the Licensed Practical Nursing program graduated.

Beginning with a solitary building, TVCC moved to its present location in 1965. Several buildings were added over the years and today there are 14 major buildings on campus. The enrollment has increased significantly since the early days, and the college now serves nearly 5,500 students annually. Growth has not altered the TVCC approach to education. Caring, competent instructors and staff welcome all students to excellent, affordable educational opportunities in a pleasant rural setting. The College continues to grow and flourish, always seeking to meet the needs of its community.
