George C. Wallace State Technical Trade School was established by the Alabama Regional Trade School Act of 1947. In 1955, the name of the institution was changed to George C. Wallace State Vocational Trade School, and on May 3, 1963, by decree of the Alabama State Legislature, the institution became George C. Wallace State Technical Junior College. In response to a recommendation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), the technical school and junior college were united in 1969 to form South Alabama's first comprehensive community college. The Commission on Colleges of SACS accredited George C. Wallace State Community College (WCC) to award associate degrees and certificates in 1969, and accreditation was reaffirmed in 1973, 1984, 1994, and 2002.
