According to an article published by Inside Higher Ed, the further a college is from a potential student, the less likely they will be to enroll.
And at TCTC, we understand that distance matters.
Your access to a quality education is what motivates us to provide four different campus locations for you! So no matter where you live, whether in Anderson County, Oconee County, Pickens County or even in surrounding areas outside of our tri-county area, one of our campuses is never too far.
Convenience truly is a nonnegotiable for many of our students who have other obligations and responsibilities such as work or family that require their time and attention. As a result, we have worked to make your experience in higher education as seamless as possible. And a lot of that ease in education comes from having choice and availability.
The Pendleton Campus, often known as Tri-County Technical College’s main campus, sits on ninety-one acres of land and contains fourteen buildings designed for our students’ success. Just minutes from Clemson University, the Pendleton Campus is home to many of TCTC’s over seventy different majors!
Our second campus in Anderson County is our Anderson Campus. Located just off of Michelin Boulevard, the Anderson Campus offers our students access to programs based on the needs of our local businesses and industries, which include our transfer degrees (Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, and University Studies) as well as Pre-Dental Hygiene, and the first year of Mechatronics!
For our Greenville and Pickens county residents, the Easley Campus is readily available. Seated off of Powdersville Road, the Easley Campus also provides our students convenient access to our transfer degrees, Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) diploma, Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) degree, Business Administration, and Computer Technology!
Lastly, in 2018, Oconee County received its own convenient community campus! The TCTC Oconee campus is right off of South Carolina’s Scenic Highway 11 in Westminster and is neighbors with the newly built Hamilton Career Center. Here, our students can pursue various degrees, including our transfer degrees, Mechatronics, Industrial Electronics Technology, CNC Programming and Operations, Manufacturing Management and Leadership, and Business Administration.
Ultimately, no matter what your educational or career goals are, Tri-County is here (and there!) to help make your dreams a reality!
