Central Carolina Technical College Offers No-Cost Tuition for Spring Semester

Having the right credentials and skills are necessary to fill high-demand jobs, which makes Central Carolina Technical College a critical part of the solution to the current labor shortage. We have a strong track record of providing education and training to our students that lead them into meaningful careers after graduation. We train professionals to enter the workforce and now we are offering this training at no cost this spring semester! 

This generous offer is a part of the Workforce Scholarships for the Future Program, which helps students take charge of their future. With more than 50 academic programs to choose from, students can get the education and training they need to fill the high-demand careers of today’s workforce. 

“Workforce Scholarships for the Future opens doors for South Carolinians, helping them get the training and education they need to work in high-demand fields across the state,” says Dr. Tim Hardee, president of the South Carolina Technical College System. This scholarship is helping build a skilled and ready workforce for business and industry.” 

CCTC’s no-cost tuition program is available to South Carolina residents including recent high school graduates, adults with some college and adults with no college. Tuition and fees will be covered after all federal, state, local and private assistance, including other available scholarships and grants, are applied. This program does not include books or required supplies and it does not cover tuition costs for visiting or transient students.

To qualify for this program, students must complete a 2021-2022 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), or FAFSA waiver (if applicable), provide the appropriate documents needed to complete steps to determine grant eligibility and have exhausted all other grants and scholarships. Funding is provided by the South Carolina Workforce Scholarships for the Future program, along with other funding sources made available by Central Carolina Technical College. These funds are “last-in” funds and will be applied to a student’s account after all other financial aid sources have been exhausted. Scholarship recipients will be required to maintain a 2.0 grade-point average and either be employed, take a financial literacy course offered at the college or complete 100 hours of voluntary time contributing to a nonprofit or public service organization. 

Registration is now open for the spring 2022 semester at Central Carolina Technical College. To learn more about this groundbreaking no-cost initiative or to enroll for spring 2022, visit cctech.edu/no-cost-tuition.
