As a Beaufort native, I grew up driving by TCL every day and never fully realized all that it had to offer. After working at TCL for nearly 10 years, I’ve learned a lot about why TCL is a smart choice. Let me share a few highlights:

  • Easy on the wallet. TCL is the perfect place to pursue college at a fraction of the cost.  With S.C. Lottery Tuition Assistance, full-time tuition is around $900 a semester. In addition, many students qualify for other financial aid and scholarship assistance. In fact, many attend TCL for free.
  • Easy to transfer. 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. TCL also offers more than 80 courses that will transfer to other institutions.
  • Career confidence. Our 80+ accredited programs of study provide hands-on education for high-skilled, in-demand jobs of today and tomorrow. In fact, 93 percent of our graduates go on to work in their field of study or continue their education.
  • Students matter here. Students are more than just another number at TCL: their success is why we do what we do. Small classes and dedicated faculty ensure all students get the personal attention they deserve.


These are just a few reasons to choose TCL. I encourage you to visit one of our campuses or learn more at If you’d like to speak to someone in admissions that can answer your questions right away, please call us at 843.525.8207.
