Why Dual Enrollment?

Right now, tuition and fees are completely covered for dual enrollment students in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper county school districts, meaning these students pay nothing out-of-pocket. Private and home school students are often eligible for Lottery Tuition Assistance (LTA), which makes TCL the most affordable college in the region.

Taking some of the basic freshman and sophomore courses at TCL can lighten your academic load your first semester on campus at your four year college/university.
