The costs to attend Tri-County make us one of the best values in education you'll find anywhere! We're committed to keeping the costs as low as possible and the quality unparalleled. Even so, we understand that paying for your college education can be a challenge, so be sure you check out all your options for financial aid as early as possible.
Applying for Aid
You could receive money from the federal government, the state of South Carolina, and Tri-County Technical College that can help you pay for college. To apply or renew your financial aid, your first step is to complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA® (include Tri-County's school code: 004926).
You've Completed Your FAFSA. What's Next?

To help ease the financial burden for South Carolina college students and their families, the South Carolina General Assembly has created an income tax credit for tuition paid to South Carolina colleges and universities. To claim the credit, a Form SC 1040 must be filed. When preparing the South Carolina income tax return, Form I-319 Tuition Tax Credit must be completed. This form is included with all state individual income tax booklets. For more information about the tax credit, please visit the South Carolina Tuition Tax Credit website.
