TCL to pay for tuition and fees through summer

It’s back! The Technical College of the Lowcountry’s paid tuition program will continue through the summer of 2022 offering S.C. residents the opportunity to further their education – for free.

Launched in November, the program was made possible through a combination of federal, state and private funding sources and covered Fall 2021 and Spring 2022 semesters. It now covers tuition and fees for those who are eligible through the Summer semester.

Registration and enrollment for summer and fall classes begins March 28.

Who Is Eligible?

TCL’s paid tuition program is available to South Carolina residents with a desire to begin or continue their education, including:

  • Adults with some college
  • Adults with no college
  • Recent high school graduates

All college-eligible students who enroll in a TCL academic program for six credit hours or more per semester are eligible for TCL’s paid tuition program for summer 2022 semester.

The program includes required fees but does not include books or required supplies, and does not apply to Dual Enrollment and/or Transient Students.

How Do I Qualify?

To qualify for TCL’s paid tuition program, students must complete a 2021-2022 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), or FAFSA waiver (if applicable). Some types of aid require an additional signed affidavit. Please check your TCL email.
