Pay For College

College is affordable at Trident Technical College. Factor in the opportunity to receive scholarships, financial aid and SC lottery-funded tuition assistance and you will find college is well within your reach.


How do I find out if I received a Pell Grant while enrolled in college? To check if you’re a Pell Grant recipient, you can log into with your FSA ID. If you have never had an FSA ID, click on Create an Account.

From your dashboard: My Aid, click on View Details, and then click on the Grants tab.
