Academics | Technical College of the LowCountry



It’s all about learning.

At the heart of it, TCL is all about education, i.e., Academics.  Here on the “credit” side, we offer more than 90 programs of study, all of which are accredited and affordable.  Whatever your age, background or interest, pursuing higher education at TCL is a very smart choice.

And it’s working.

More than 93 percent of TCL graduates go on to work in their field of study or continue their education. Our college-level associate degree, diploma and certificate programs provide hands-on education for high-skilled, in-demand jobs of today and tomorrow. In addition, TCL’s two-year Associate of Arts and Science degrees are transferable in full to many four-year institutions in and out of the state – including Clemson, University of South Carolina and South Carolina State University.

Because we offer so many choices, we’ve organized our offerings in a variety of ways to help you navigate to the best fit for you.

Career Paths – This section organizes our program offerings by career field groupings. So, for example, if you know you want to do something with computers, you’d simply select “Computers.” Health care careers on your mind? Choose “Health Sciences.”
