Dr. Mary ThornleyLETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT

Choosing the right college is an important decision and can be a large investment. Trident Technical College makes the decision-making process easier. Whether you choose to enroll in TTC’s university transfer program or one of our technical degree programs, you can be assured of TTC’s commitment to provide innovative educational programs and services. One year at TTC costs less than half of the tuition at most four-year colleges, and S.C. Lottery-funded Tuition Assistance makes higher education even more affordable at TTC.

TTC can give you an edge—an opportunity to develop the skills demanded by today’s employers. With first-class instruction, personal attention and practical hands-on education in some of the hottest career fields, TTC will equip you for success. Courses are taught in a seven-week compressed format to enable even greater student success.

More than 15,000 students are attending TTC to prepare for a successful future. The college offers more than 150 programs of study, including transfer programs for those continuing at four-year colleges and beyond. Students prepare for careers in business; industrial and engineering technology; aeronautical studies; health care; hospitality, tourism and culinary arts; film, media and visual arts; law-related studies; community, family and child studies; humanities and social sciences; and science and mathematics.

As you explore colleges, I hope you will consider one of the best choices in the Lowcountry: Trident Technical College.

Warmest regards,

Mary Thornley, Ed.D.
