Students Drawn To Prices Technical Colleges Offer

Posted: Updated:

College tuition is going up at four South Carolina public colleges and universities.

The Citadel, the College of Charleston, Winthrop, and Lander University are all implementing a tuition hike of at least three percent for the upcoming school year.  As the price for higher education continues to climb, technical colleges become more appealing for those footing the bill.    With help from the South Carolina Lottery, students ultimately save thousands, Public Relations Director Leigh Copeland said.

 

“It opens a lot of doors for people who may not be able to afford college right off the bat at a four year institution,” Copeland said.  “But you can come here for the first few years, two years, and then transfer to any institution in the state, public or private and you're saving thousands of dollars.”

 

The South Carolina lottery program foots over $1100 a semester at TCL, leaving students to pay around $800.
