We Want to Help You

This past week Hurricane Florence disrupted life for everyone in the Lowcountry. We realize the financial hardship this event may have created for you if you have lost pay, had evacuation-related expenses or incurred additional costs to prepare your home and family for the storm. We are also aware that these financial burdens may affect your ability to remain in school and complete the term. We want to help.

There are many college and community resources available to help you remain in college. If paying tuition is an issue, we have payment plan options, and financial aid assistance may be available. If you have suffered a personal financial setback, you may benefit from the Trident Technical College Foundation's Student Emergency Fund. Through these college resources, along with referrals to community resources, we hope to provide the support you need to continue your educational journey.

Grocery Vault Locations: Food assistance is available year-round through the college's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa and the Clemente Coalition student organization, which operate Grocery Vault locations on both Thornley Campus (formerly Main Campus) and Palmer Campus. The Grocery Vault offers grocery items free of charge to anyone with a valid Trident Tech ID.
