Start Your Path To Success

Here is the information you need to start your path to success at Trident Tech.

Steps To Success

These five steps will take you all the way from letting us know you are interested in attending Trident Tech to showing up to your first day of class. Each step contains many useful links that will help you complete each step. If you ever need help our Admissions office is here to answer your questions.



If you are new to TTC and have never applied before, complete the online application. If you are new to TTC, but have applied within the last two years, complete an Application Update Form.

If you are a previous TTC student, follow these instructions. If you are planning to take courses while enrolled in high school, follow these instructions.

All other applicants can determine their status on the Admission Requirements page.

After you submit your application, please submit the following to the Admissions office:

  1. Proof of high school graduation or GED (more info).
  2. Proof of English and math proficiency (more info).
  3. Proof of lawful presence in the United States (more info).

A few business days after you apply to TTC, we will send you an acknowledgment letter with information on how to access your new account. From now on, almost all of TTC's communications with you will be through


Financial Aid

Apply for all aid (including lottery) except scholarships by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) here.

Be sure to include TTC as one of the colleges you select to receive a copy of your Student Aid Report. Once you are admitted to the college, we match your application with your Student Aid Report to start the awarding process.

TTC also has a number of campus-based scholarships.

Remember to check your account at least twice a week for updates on your status.

Once you have received a email notification that you have been admitted to TTC, you are ready to be advised and registered for classes. This takes place in The Hub in Bldg. 500 on Thornley Campus.

If you have declared a major or are undecided, contact the advisor you were assigned after orientation. He/she will help you select classes and register.

Nondegree students are not assigned academic advisors. Visiting students from other institutions (transient students) contact the Registrar's office.

TTC Bookstore
Once you are registered, you may purchase your books through the Bookstore. Do not open them or write in them until you are sure that you have the correct books, that the class has not been canceled or that you will not make changes in your schedule.

You may obtain your Student ID in the Student Activities office on Thornley Campus, in the Admissions office on Palmer, and in the Library on Berkeley.


Pay Tuition

Each semester there are two fee payment deadlines. If you register for classes before the first deadline and want to keep that schedule, then you must pay any balance due by the first deadline. If you register after the first deadline, then your balance is due no later than the published final payment deadline.

View balance due in your account. It will include any financial aid awards. TTC does NOT mail bills.

Pay online or in-person at any campus Business office (843-574-6026).

TTC also offers an automatic payment plan so you can spread out your tuition payments over time. You can sign up for the payment plan in The tuition payment plan is not a loan program. There is no debt incurred. There is no credit search. There are no interest or finance charges.

For tuition and costs visit Tuition and Payments.


You are now ready to attend classes. Check the calendar to see when your classes start.
