Toccoa Falls College


Recommended Posts

Welcome to Toccoa Falls College! Our school is a private, nonprofit, Christian liberal arts institution located in the foothills of beautiful northeast Georgia. Established in 1907 by founder R. A. Forrest, our school’s mission is to “cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community that integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce graduates prepared both personally and professionally for service.” The College works with many evangelical Christian groups and is an affiliated college of the Christian and Missionary Alliance denomination.
An essential part of grooming future leaders is to provide the best in the academic curriculum to prepare students for the future. Toccoa Falls College has been accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools since 1983. A variety of undergraduate degree programs and certificate programs are offered through the College’s four schools, the School of Arts & Sciences, the School of Christian Ministries, the School of Professional Studies, and our new Fetterman School of Nursing, which opens Fall 2017. Our total enrollment figure is just over 1,200 (all undergraduates), including residential and online. Our small 14:1 ratio facilitates an open door policy and excellent one-on-one advising from faculty to students.
Our beautiful campus sits on 1,100-acres in the rural foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, where students and visitors to the campus can enjoy the gorgeous views of the mountain scenery while enjoying the many outdoor activities the area provides such as rock-climbing, whitewater rafting, hiking, camping and more. Recently ranked among the “Top 50 Most Beautiful Christian Colleges & Universities” in the US, the campus is home to the historic “Toccoa Falls” waterfall. At 186 feet, the waterfall is taller than Niagra Falls, and the tallest falls east of the Mississippi River.
Surrounded by dense woods, the campus itself features several facilities built in a modern architectural style, including the Grace Chapel and Performing Arts Center. Toccoa Falls College will be known as a premier Christian college that uniquely integrates biblical truth, academic excellence, and intentional spiritual formation within a caring Christian community.
The mission of Toccoa Falls College is to cultivate a uniquely Christian learning community that integrates the pursuit of truth with godly character to produce graduates prepared both personally and professionally for service.

We assist current students and alumni in choosing a major that aligns with the desired career, assessment inventories to target career strengths, and skill development such as mock interviews and resume critiques. Several opportunities each year provide for access to job fairs on and off-campus.
Our approach is to begin talking about building career readiness from the first year a student enters TFC and progressing through to graduation. Career Services strives to offer all the tools needed for student and alumni success.
