Evening College FAQs

Will all of Trident Tech's courses transfer to any other college? 

Trident Technical College's transfer program is designed to help students make a seamless transition from one college to another. Most of the courses in the Associate in Arts (AA) and Associate in Science (AS) programs transfer to most other colleges in the country because TTC is a regionally accredited college. If you are transferring to another public college in South Carolina, a useful tool to see what will transfer from TTC can be found at sctrac.org. Regardless of where you plan to transfer, it is important that you consult the catalog of that college in addition to one of our AA or AS academic advisors so that you can be sure that you select the best transfer courses. TTC's University Transfer program offers students a flexible, affordable beginning to a four-year degree. Whether you wish to take just a course or two or complete a transfer associate degree, TTC has a variety of options to choose from.

Can I transfer credits from another college to Trident Tech?

TTC welcomes students who have already begun to earn credits at other regionally accredited colleges and universities. We look forward to helping you make the most of the coursework you have already completed. Learn more here.

What type of financial aid is available?

You must be an eligible degree-seeking student to receive financial aid. Financial aid can be split into two main categories: financial aid that requires you to complete a FAFSA and financial aid that does not require a FAFSA. Because some scholarships require a FAFSA for consideration, a FAFSA is highly recommended. Visit www.fafsa.gov to complete the FAFSA.

The types of financial aid available are:

  • Federal grants such as Pell Grants (FPELL) and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG)
  • State grants such as South Carolina Need-Based Grants (SCNBG) and South Carolina Lottery-Funded Tuition Assistance (SCLTA) and scholarships such as LIFE
  • Federal Work-Study
  • Student Loans
  • Scholarships
  • Institutional Work-Study
  • Veterans, Veterans Dependents and Service Personnel
