Welcome to Tuition & Financial Aid
The mission of the Financial Aid Office at Central Carolina Technical College is to provide access and choice to students who without such assistance would not be able to attend an institution of higher learning.
Financial Aid is available to all eligible students regardless of sex, race, color, national origin, or disability.
The most common reason students give for not coming to college is they believe they cannot afford college. However, most students have more than one financial aid option available. Please, look through this section on Financial Services, and let us help you find your way to educational success.
The Student Services Center offers assistance with all financial aid applications at any time during normal office hours. No appointment is needed. Bring in your income information, and we’ll help you get started.
Financial aid workshops are held each semester to assist individuals seeking funds available through various sources, or to maintain eligibility for current assistance. At these workshops, various topics, including types of financial aid, financial literacy, loan information, satisfactory academic progress, veterans concerns, and learning and study techniques. will be discussed. Workshops are held at different times and in different locations to accommodate a variety of student schedules. Check myCCTC, and the plasma TVs on campus for details.
Do you still have questions regarding financial aid? Feel free to contact the Financial Aid office at (803) 778-7831, and you’ll find trained professionals ready to help answer your questions, and walk you through the processes. Need that face to face interaction? Stop by the Central Carolina Technical College main campus, and visit Financial Services in the Student Services building – the ’round building’. We are open Monday through Thursday, 8:00am until 6:00pm and Fridays 8:00am until 4:30pm.
To help ease the financial burden for South Carolina college students and their families, the South Carolina General Assembly has created an income tax credit for tuition paid to South Carolina colleges and universities. To claim the credit, a Form SC 1040 must be filed. When preparing the South Carolina income tax return, Form I-319 Tuition Tax Credit must be completed. This form is included with all state individual income tax booklets. For more information about the tax credit, please visit the
South Carolina Tuition Tax Credit website.
