Tuition and Fees
The tuition at Trident Technical College is less than half of most other colleges and universities, which makes Trident Technical College a wise and affordable choice.
When planing your financial assistance, a good place to start is with the tuition and fees for one semester in the current academic year. It will also be helpful to understand the total cost of attending Trident Tech. This includes things like books and transportation and is used to determine the amount of financial aid awarded. To help you figure out a more accurate cost of attending college we offer the Net Price Calculator.
Scholarships and other financial aid
There are many types of financial aid available to our students. A very important first step in recieving financial aid is filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
To help make college as affordable as possible Trident Tech offers a deferred payment. This is a payment plan and not a loan – interest charges, finance charges and credit checks do not apply. This gives you several flexible payment options that will work best for you.
How to Apply for Financial Aid
Applying for financial aid is not as difficult as you might think. When you follow our step-by-step instructions, it is actually easy. The entire process can take 4-6 weeks so be sure to start the process early and stay on top of all of the important deadlines and promptly provide any documents requested by the Financial Aid office. A late start could mean that your award isn’t available by the tuition deadline. If your financial aid isn’t in place by the deadline, you will be responsible for paying out of pocket.
