College is an investment in your child’s future, but that doesn’t mean you have to go broke paying for it. Midlands Technical College offers a quality education for much less than a traditional four-year college.

Your child will receive the same great education, with small class sizes and lots of personal attention—even one-on-one tutoring. We have many of the same amenities and resources as a four-year school, without all the high overhead costs.

When students take their first two years’ worth of core courses at MTC, they'll save thousands on tuitionplus they can still transfer to and graduate from the institution of their choice. It’s win-win.

We offer lots of support for our transfer students so they won’t lose any credits or take unnecessary courses, and we have articulation agreements with most of the colleges and universities across the state.

Bridge Students

Was your child selected for a bridge program? Bridge is a guided transfer program to a four-year school. Students in bridge programs experience a more seamless transition when transferring and greater success after transfer. MTC has established bridge programs with several colleges in South Carolina, including USC and College of Charleston.

Your Child's Right to Privacy

We love hearing from parents, but you should know there may be details about your child's education that we cannot legally disclose. The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of student education records. FERPA gives parents certain rights with respect to their children's education records; however, these rights transfer to the student when he or she reaches the age of 18 or attends a school beyond the high school level.
