CCTC’s new Titan Tech Scholarship offers low- to no-cost tuition; most credit programs, 6 continuing education courses qualify


If an individual is looking for new skills to be more marketable in the workplace, Central Carolina Technical College has another deal you do not want to miss out on.

The Central Carolina Titan Tech Scholarship for the upcoming fall semester is a new venture offering low- to no-cost tuition to qualified applicants for all fields of study except associate in arts and associate in science programs, and a college spokeswoman discussed the opportunity recently.

CCTC’s Director of Marketing and Communications Nicole Miles said additional funding sources now allow CCTC to remove one of the major challenges to earning a college degree – the cost of tuition – and with the new scholarship, students can choose from more than 45 programs and continuing education courses. Central Carolina has flexible course and schedule options, and some classes have daytime or evening options as part of CCTC’s relatively new Evening College program, she added.

Programs cover industrial fields (such as welding, mechatronics and automotive technician); health sciences fields (such as medical assistant, massage therapy and nursing); early childhood care and education; business management; and computer science courses.

The new scholarship has some parameters to qualify, including being enrolled in at least six credit hours, having a 2.0 cumulative GPA from the previous academic year if someone previously received money, being a South Carolina resident and completing a 2023-24 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and other scholarship forms.

Six non-credit, continuing education programs also qualify for the scholarship and include Certified Logistics Technician, Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), Commercial Driver’s License (CDL), Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), Manufacturing Technician and Phlebotomy.

Miles added CCTC’s Titan Tech Scholarship is available to state residents, including recent high school graduates, adults with some college and also adults with no college experience. Tuition and fees will be covered after all federal, state, local and private assistance, including other available scholarships and grants, are applied.

To learn more about the scholarship opportunity or to enroll, go to, or contact CCTC’s admissions department at (803) 778-7812 or

CCTC’s fall semester begins on Monday, Aug. 21, but Miles said the earlier that prospective students can register the better.
