The College has two University Transfer programs, Associate in Arts and Associate in Science, that are designed to transfer to senior colleges and universities. For maximum transfer credit, we urge you to work closely with your academic advisor to review the requirements for your anticipated major at the college to which you plan to transfer.
Other associate degree programs at Tri-County are designed to be career programs. These programs prepare graduates to enter employment in their chosen fields, following graduation. However, numbers of courses in the career programs DO transfer to specific four-year colleges and universities. In fact, there are several transfer agreements in place that are designed especially for graduates of career programs.
The South Carolina Transfer and Articulation Center (SC TRAC) was created as a one-stop shop for transfer students, administrators and advisors/faculty to offer easy access to information pertaining to college transfer. SC TRAC displays detailed and up-to-date information on degree pathways; provides students with an easy way to access transfer agreements developed between public institutions in a searchable database; and enables students to compare current courses against equivalent courses at another institution and learn how those courses meet degree requirements for a specific major.

In addition to the well-known Bridge to Clemson Program, Tri-County Technical College has bridge and transfer agreements with other postsecondary institutions. Each program is unique, but in all cases, students who meet specified criteria may transfer to the 4-year institution after completion of their freshman year at Tri-County.
The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) maintains regulations and procedures for transfer in public two-year and four-year institutions. The commission also provides helpful information on transfer and articulation in South Carolina.
