The Tennessee Technology Center at Athens is one of 46 institutions in the Tennessee Board of Regents (TBR) system, the seventh largest system of higher education in the nation. The Tennessee Board of Regents is the governing board for this system that is comprised of six universities, thirteen community colleges, and twenty-seven technology centers. The Tennessee Board of Regents system enrolls more than eighty percent of all Tennessee students attending public institutions of higher education.
TTCA is fully accredited by the Council on Occupational Education (COE). The Council on Occupational Education (COE), originally founded in 1971 as a regional accrediting agency of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, is the successor to the Commission on Occupational Education Institutions (COEI). In 1995, the Council became a national accrediting agency. In 2006, the Council celebrated its 35th year of assuring quality and integrity in career and technical education. The Council's accreditation process is conducted on behalf of more than 181,000 students across the nation who pursue careers in a variety of technical fields.
