The Technical College of the Lowcountry will host an all-day open house from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Thursday, April 21 in the MacLean Hall student Center at the Beaufort Campus, 921 Ribaut Road.
Experts from TCL’s admissions, financial aid and academic divisions will provide information and answer questions. Campus tours will run every 30 minutes throughout the day. In addition, faculty and current students will provide lab demonstrations across campus from 4 to 7 p.m.
TCL offers degree, diploma and certificate programs that lead to in-demand careers in industrial technologies, business technologies and health sciences.
In addition, TCL’s transfer degree programs allow students to complete their first two years of college at TCL and then transfer to the college or university of their choice. Continuing education and workforce development options are also available. Visit http://www.tcl.edu/programs-of-study for a full list of programs.
“Because our students are actively engaged in hands-on learning experiences in real-world settings in and out of the classroom, they are truly prepared for the workforce when they complete their program of study,” Vice President for Student Affairs Nancy Weber said. “Plus TCL’s courses and programs are carefully designed to meet the needs of local employers, which help our graduates get great jobs in our area.”
In fact, more than 93 percent of recent TCL graduates are either continuing their education or employed in their field of study.
Federal and state financial aid options are available through the TCL financial aid office. Additionally, most South Carolina residents qualify for S.C. Lottery Tuition Assistance, which is not based on need or income, and can pay more than half of TCL tuition.
In-state tuition is offered to military members and their spouses who are stationed in Beaufort as well as to residents of Chatham and Effingham Counties in Georgia.
