Cost of Attendance

To determine your financial need, the Financial Aid Office uses a cost of attendance budget.

The cost of attendance (COA) is the estimated total amount of an academic year’s expenses to attend Trident Technical College. COA components include tuition and fees; room and board; allowances for books/supplies; transportation; and personal expenses.

These costs are used to calculate your financial aid award, and are not the same as your billing statement. Due to federal guidelines, we are unable to award financial aid that exceeds the total Cost of Attendance.

For direct costs involved in attending TTC, visit the tuition and payment page.
