The Technical College of the Lowcountry is hosting an open house for adult learners on Thursday, February 11 at 5 p.m. in building 12 at the TCL Beaufort Campus. The event will feature information about TCL’s programs of study, admissions, financial aid and veteran resources. Campus tours will also be offered.
TCL serves both traditional and non-traditional college students. Adult learners make up a large portion of the student body, which has an average age of 27.
“It’s never too late to go back to college,” Vice President for Student Affairs Nancy Weber said. “TCL has resources and experts to help students of all ages find the right program that will lead to an exceptional career and bright future.”
TCL offers degree, diploma, certificate and transfer programs in industrial technologies, business technologies, arts and sciences, and health sciences. Continuing education and workforce development options are also available.
The college’s programs are carefully designed to meet the needs of local employers, helping graduates find valuable employment in our area.
“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 to enter the workforce,” Weber said.
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.

The Technical College of the Lowcountry is committed to a policy of equal opportunity for all qualified applicants for admissions or employment without regard to race, gender, national origin, age, religion, marital status, veteran status, disability, or political affiliation or belief.
