Residency Requirements for Admission

Residents of South Carolina as defined by state law are independent persons who have been domiciled in South Carolina for a period of no less than 12 months who have full-time employment in the state and the dependents of such person. Payment of South Carolina property taxes or living with relatives other than parents except under court decree is not a factor in determining legal state residence. If there is any question, contact the Registrar at 661-8351 or the Financial Aid Office at 661-8085.

The South Carolina Illegal Immigration Reform Act requires that all students currently attending FDTC provide proof of residency in order to remain in school.
