Tuition and Fees

Greenville Technical College is a great value. You could pay two to three times as much at a public four-year college, and much more at a private college.

Greenville Tech uses a linear tuition and fees model in which students pay by the credit hour, no matter how many hours they take. This structure was adopted by the SC Technical College System, and is now in place at many of the system’s colleges. 

Lottery Funds for qualifying South Carolina students:
Lottery Tuition Assistance - full-time (12-credit-hour minimum) for Fall 2013 $1140
Lottery Tuition Assistance - part-time Per Credit Hour (six-credit-hour minimum)  $95

Net Price Calculator
Let us do the math with this calculator, which estimates your costs and deducts your financial aid based on information you provide.  

 Books 
The cost of books is not included in tuition costs and varies by class.  For details, access this complete list of the current books in use and their cost.

Student Housing
Student housing is not included in the tuition and fees listed. For information on student housing, please visit www.gtechhousing.com.

Financial Aid 
Most forms of Financial Aid such as Lottery and Federal Stafford Loans have a 6 credit-hour minimum.  Financial aid funds are based on official dates of attendance and will be reduced or revoked for withdrawals.  To receive any form of aid, you must have a completed and verified FAFSA on file.  Apply for the 2013-2014 school year immediately with your 2012 taxes.

Plan 60
If you're 60 or older and live in state, you can take classes for the cost of fees only. (Some classes require a lab or studio fee.) You must be unemployed or employed on a part-time basis to qualify.

Change of address
When you change addresses, update your records immediately through WebAdvisor via GTC4me, the admissions office or any satellite campus. Your tuition rate is based on where you live before the semester starts. Once the semester is underway, we will make your changes and you will pay the new tuition rate next semester. A correct address on file will also ensure that any refund checks will be properly delivered.

Also make sure we have a current email address on file. That is the address we will use for account statements and bill notifications.

Auditing a class
Auditing lets you review a class without grades or tests. No credit is given and fees are the same as for a credit course. If you wish to audit, you must declare this when you enroll.
