Motlow State Community College, located in Tullahoma, Tennessee, was founded in 1969 and built on a 187 acre land grant provided by Senator Reagor Motlow. The school serves 11 counties through four locations, to over 540,000 citizens. MSCC is governed by the Tennessee Board of Regents, which operates 13 community colleges in the state. Motlow provides a quality education to its service communities, consistently doing well on national exams by its graduates.

Motlow State Community College offers over fifty programs of study. The programs are broken down into three categories, transfer, degree and certificate programs for career readiness, and personal enrichment and continuing education. Transfer programs fulfill the first two years of a four year education, allowing transfer to a college or university to complete a bachelor's degree upon completion of the program. Career programs prepare students by providing training in a particular field, imparting the skills and knowledge necessary to perform duties and functions at the entry level immediately after graduation. These programs take between one and two years to complete and result in a certificate or degree to demonstrate qualifications. Personal enrichment and continuing education courses allow individuals to take non credit courses for personal growth, or courses designed to refresh one's education and allow for renewal of certification or licensing as required by state law.
