Welcome to the Technical College of the Lowcountry! The faculty, staff, and area commission join me in congratulating you on taking the next step toward creating your new success story!
We are one of 16 colleges in the South Carolina Technical College System. We proudly serve Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper counties as well as Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island and the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort.
We have three campus locations to serve you. Our historic main campus is located near downtown Beaufort and our New River campus, featuring the Angus Cotton Academic Center, is located in Bluffton. Our third location is the Hampton county campus, H. Mungin Center, in Varnville. Each location provides stimulating learning environments for both personal and professional development. We are under construction for our fourth location: the Culinary Institute of the South in Bluffton, S.C.
The College offers a wide range of curriculum and continuing education programs. TCL students have many options to choose from including college transfer and technical applied programs, basic skills and literacy development, occupational training consistent with fields of employment, and specialized development for business and industry. We are committed to helping increase the employability of our students by ensuring they are fully prepared for the careers of today - and tomorrow.
We are excited about the future of our College and look forward to your becoming a part of the TCL family as we assist you in reaching your educational and personal goals. I invite you to explore the catalog, peruse the website, visit one of our campuses, speak to our faculty and staff, and share with us all you hope to achieve while at TCL and beyond.
As you enter our doors you will find many opportunities for growth, both academically and professionally. Whether you are here for college transfer or a career pathway, you will find a College that is dedicated to your success. We look forward to helping you step up to the future you deserve.
Best wishes for your future,
