Welcome to Trident Technical College located in beautiful Charleston, South Carolina. Whether you are a current student studying at TTC or a prospective student interested in pursuing your studies at TTC, the Office of International Admissions is dedicated to assist all International students with the admissions process, visa information, and other individual needs.



Trident Technical College is a public, two-year, multi-campus community college that provides quality education and promotes economic development in Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties.

TTC offers more than 150 programs of study in a variety of technical and career areas, as well as the Associate in Arts and the Associate in Science degree programs which are parallel to the first two years of a university program. You can complete the first two years of a bachelor's degree at Trident Technical College and then transfer to a four-year institution to complete requirements for a bachelor's degree.

Almost all International students are subject to out-of-state tuition and fees. One of the great benefits of starting your education at TTC is that it will save you a large amount in tuition costs because the tuition and fees at TTC are on average much lower than you would find at four-year institutions. This will make your education in the United States more affordable.
