TCL offering free tuition, fees

2 mins read

From staff reports

As a result of newly available federal, state and private funding sources, the Technical College of the Lowcountry (TCL) will cover tuition and fees for those who are eligible for the spring 2022 semester.

Those interested in attending TCL should act fast – the deadline to enroll for TCL’s Spring I semester is Jan. 6. Because TCL will be closed Dec. 21 through Jan. 3, students are encouraged to begin the registration process as early as possible.

TCL’s paid tuition program is being made available to all South Carolina residents with a desire to begin or continue their education. This includes adults with some or no college education and recent high school graduates.

Students must be enrolled in at least six credit hours, or about two classes, for the spring semester and also complete the 2021-2022 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid).

Dual Enrollment and transient students, or those enrolled at another college but who are taking courses at TCL for transfer, are not eligible for the program.

The program will cover tuition and required fees but does not include books or required supplies.

Those with questions about the program or who are interested in enrolling in person are encouraged to attend TCL’s ‘Step Up Saturday’ enrollment event this Saturday, Dec. 4.

Staff members with TCL’s Enrollment Services Office will be on hand to assist students and prospects with completing the enrollment process, walk-in testing and registration.

The event is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 4 at the Beaufort Mather Campus, 921 Ribaut Road, Beaufort, at the New River Campus, 100 Community College Drive, Bluffton and at the Hampton Campus, 54 Tech Circle, Varnville.
