All Trident Tech programs offered tuition free for 2022-23 academic year

August 3, 2022

All of Trident Technical College’s programs of study will be available tuition free for eligible South Carolina residents for the 2022-23 academic year thanks to additional funding provided by the state.

In recent years South Carolina residents have been able to enroll in a number of career training programs at Trident Tech without paying out of pocket for tuition and fees. With the additional funding from the state, the college is able to offer all of its programs, including its popular university transfer programs, tuition free for the full 2022-23 academic year.

In addition to being South Carolina residents, both new and current students must complete a 2022-23 Free Application for Federal Student Aid to be eligible to attend tuition free. New students and students who have not been enrolled during the last three semesters must also submit a college admission application. Other requirements vary based on the type of state aid awarded. The college will first apply any federal and state grants and scholarships awarded, then waive any remaining tuition, registration and course fees. Eligible students can attend either full or part time.

The college offers several terms during the fall semester. The first fall semester classes begin Aug. 22. For more information visit or call 843-574-6111.
