Aiken Technical College Announces No Tuition Increase for Upcoming Academic Year

Aiken Technical College has announced no tuition increase for the 2021-2022 academic year.

“Our goal is to make sure that area residents have access to affordable, quality higher education. This past year has been tough on many financially, and by implementing no tuition increase, we hope that this will help alleviate financial concerns for those wanting to pursue a college credential,” said Dr. Forest Mahan, President of Aiken Technical College. “In addition to keeping our tuition low, the college also offers several sources of financial aid, including SC Lottery Tuition Assistance, the SC WINS scholarship, and other forms of federal and state aid. Packaged together, a South Carolina resident could pay very little, if any, tuition.”

Tuition for Aiken County residents will remain at $189 per credit hour and at $204 per credit hour for all other South Carolina residents.

For the fall 2021 semester, South Carolina residents meeting eligibility requirements for the SC Lottery Tuition Assistance program may receive a tuition discount of up to $85 per credit hour for a maximum of 15 credit hours per semester.

Students qualifying for Lottery Tuition Assistance may also be eligible for a scholarship of up to $65 per credit hour through the SC Workforce Industry Needs Scholarship (SC WINS) if enrolled in a critical workforce academic program or if they meet income eligibility guidelines.

“Now is a great time for anyone who has been thinking about going to college or gaining a new skill to enroll at Aiken Technical College,” added Mahan.

ATC is accepting applications now for the fall 2021 semester, which starts August 16.
