Whether you're in search of a unique Bridge program or even QuickJobs training in 6 months or less, we have a variety of learning experiences that will no doubt enhance your time with Tri-County.
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!
Tri-County is happy to partner with the Adult Education Centers in our service area to help students make seamless transitions.
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.
Want to change the world? First, change young people. Want to make a real difference in life? First, make a difference in young people. Want to affect eternity? Teach young people.

Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) can help you become an effective teacher with that wonderful heart-warming sense of pride that comes from being a servant-leader who is doing something important and valuable in our world.

If you're looking for personal professional development or Continuing Educational Units (CEUs) for license renewals, re-certifications, or to meet professional organization membership requirements, you will find a variety of opportunities to obtain within our Corporate and Community Education division. The classes are offered as "courses in a day," seminars, workshops or short classes during the day or evenings. Many of these courses carry pre-approval by state regulatory agencies or may qualify for approval by a specific agency or national organization.
Despite what some may feel about the current economy, there is a great demand for skilled workers in South Carolina. QuickJobs programs are designed to help you start a new career or move up to a better one through specific and occupational training. And the programs are designed to be completed in six months or less!
Because of a special arrangement with Clemson University, students may take Air Force or Army ROTC while enrolled at Tri-County.
