Tuition and Payment

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.

Below are tuition and fees for one semester in the current academic year. For payment deadlines, click here and choose appropriate semester.

Important News:

  • Students may not proceed from one semester to the next without having paid the previous semester's tuition and fees. The college's administration allows an exception for students with a balance of $200 or less. Students who do not pay their bill may have their registration for the upcoming semester cancelled.

  • Payment deadline for Fall 2020 is Aug. 20 for Fall Full/Fall 1 and Oct. 12 for Fall 2. Future semester registrations may be cancelled on Nov. 23 for past due balances.

  •  Spring 2021 statements will be available after Nov. 9.
