Offered through our Corporate and Community Education Division, located at Pendleton Campus, this center offers a unique learning experience for our students. Instead of taking your classes in a traditional classroom setting with one instructor teaching one course at a time, you will take your classes in a lab setting where you will work on one class at a time independently with other students. You will schedule your lab work to complete your course. An instructor-mentor is assigned to each lab and is available to assist you, as needed. In addition, online access allows you to also work from home or work, accelerating the pace of your course/program. Courses are available in bookkeeping, computer concepts, general office, customer service, medical office billing, medical documentation, and more. Information sessions are offered on Wednesdays at 1 pm. Join us!
Ready to get started earning your high school diploma or GED? For adults (age 21 and older) and youth (ages 17-21) who have withdrawn from high school, you'll need to study for your diploma or GED through your local Adult Education Center. Once that's underway, though, through this unique program, we have worked out a seamless transition to Tri-County Technical College.
A first of its kind in South Carolina, this invitation-only program blends the traditional academic experience at Tri-County with the social and cultural experiences of being at Clemson University. Invitations are extended by Clemson to those who narrowly miss admission to the University. Bridge students must earn 30 transfer credits at Tri-County during their Bridge year and maintain a 2.5 GPA in order to transition to Clemson for their sophomore year. They live together in a local apartment complex and have access to student life programs and services at Tri-County and Clemson.
