Technical Colleges in South Carolina

Consider the doors of opportunity available at Technical Colleges in South Carolina. South Carolina has 16 Technical Colleges. In another post, I discuss why your homeschool grad might choose a Technical college.
South Carolina has 16 Technical Colleges. I highly recommend that you and your student take a look at the Tech Colleges near you.

I highly recommend that you and your student take a look at the Tech Colleges near you. Even if you know you want to get a 4-year degree–go see what Tech can do to help you get to that goal. Even if you know you don’t want to go to college at all–go see what Tech can do to help you jump start a career.

As Midlands Tech says, “You can get anywhere from here.” I love that about Tech!

Take a look at the website to familiarize yourself with:

  • the location (or locations) of the campus
  • the cost of tuition and local/regional scholarships available
  • their degree programs and certificates
  • how to transfer to a 4-year program or institution later
  • when there are open house visits and/or how to schedule your own visit

Take time to go personally visit the campus. Talk to an admissions counselor about your specific goals after high school. They may have more information than what you can find on the website. You get a feel for the college in a way that you just can’t get from perusing their website.
