About the College

At Harry S Truman College, we believe that the path to success begins with an education - whether a student’s goal is to move immediately into the workforce or transfer to a four-year college, our faculty, staff and administration work to provide students with the support and tools necessary to succeed.
2021-2025 Strategic Plan​                                    
As City Colleges of Chicago's Center of Excellence in education, human and natural sciences, students have the opportunity to become the best teachers by learning from the best teachers.  Truman College offers a combination of certificates and associate​ degrees in those fields tailored for those first entering the education profession as well as for professionals in need of continuing education.                                   
SUPPORTING THE TRANSITION TO COLLEGE                                     
In addition to college credit classes, Truman College offers free English as a Second Language and HiSET/GED programs.                                                                        
TRUMAN MIDDLE COLLEGE                                     
Aspiring to empower students to become successful college and career-ready individuals, Truman Middle College (TMC) resides in the heart of Harry S Truman College. Open to 17 to 21 year old students who dropped out of high school but wish to earn a high school diploma, TMC is an alternative high school served under the Truant’s Alternative and Operational Education Program (TAOEP) and dedicated to students’ individual success and accountability. TMC students have the opportunity to earn dual credit – high school and college credit – in addition to taking college courses within Truman.                                     
CELEBRATING DIVERSITY                                     
All of this on a campus that celebrates originality, individuality and diversity.  Our students come from 160 different countries speaking more than 90 different languages.
