College History

History

Temple Junior College was founded in 1926 to serve post-secondary students in eastern Bell County, Texas. Classes were originally held in the basement of the Temple High School until 1957, when the campus moved to its present location on the city's south side. Racial segregation at the college ended that same year. A separate junior college district was created in 1955 and in 1959 it acquired its own board of regents. The name of the college was changed to Temple College in 1996. The main campus in Temple covers about 108 acres with twenty-seven buildings, including on-campus housing. Temple College has several branch campuses: East Williamson County Higher Education-Taylor (Taylor, Texas) East Williamson County Higher Education-Hutto (Hutto, Texas) Cameron Education Center (Cameron, Texas) Texas Bioscience Institute (Scott & White Memorial Hospital, Temple) As of Fall 2012, residents within the tax-district of the city of Temple, Texas pay $88 per credit hour, whereas those outside the district pay $154 per credit hour. Those outside the state pay $330 per credit hour
