PLEASE NOTE

The College reserves the right to change tuition and fee rates each term without prior notice.


The maximum amount of SC Lottery Tuition Assistance per term is $1,140 ($95 per credit hour) for eligible South Carolina Residents.

Fees for auditing a course are the same as taking a course for credit. Minimum of 50 cents per contact hour is charged for any continuing education student. Students can also use the Net Price Calculator to estimate tuition.

By South Carolina law, persons sixty and over may be allowed free tuition and application fees on a space available basis. However, these persons must meet admission standards and not receive compensation as full-time employees.

The above fees do not include the cost of books, shop coats, uniforms, equipment, tools and materials, graduation fees, math hub fee or allied health course fees. Fees are subject to change in accordance with policies established by the State Board for Technical and Comprehensive Education. All tuition fees must be paid or charged to financial aid, sponsor, scholarship or other source before attending class. Tuition, fees and Bookstore charges are the responsibility of the student. All institutional charges not paid by financial aid, sponsors, scholarships, loans, or other sources, must be paid by the student.

All tuition must be paid by the published due date each term. During the term, circumstances may occur which results in a student's financial aid or scholarship being reduced or rescinded or other transactions occur which causes the student's tuition and/or books to be unpaid. At this time, the student should pay the balance in full. If the account is not paid, it will be placed in our billing cycle and the student's record will be frozen to any further activity. All future registrations will be cancelled and all transcripts will be held. After the student has received three bills, the account will be placed with a collection agency and the SC Tax Commission for collection. The debtor will be assessed the cost of collection incurred in addition to the already outstanding amount.

Last Day to drop a class and receive a full refund: Students withdrawing after these dates will be responsible for tuition and fee charges.
