Battery Creek High School seniors Logan Morgan and Darlyn Estrada have taken 19 college classes combined through TCL’s dual enrollment program, saving them tens of thousands of dollars each in tuition and fees at their future universities. See their story here.

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.

Research shows that dual enrollment courses can help ease the transition to college and can lead to better grades, higher retention and higher completion rates at four-year universities.
