Community Colleges in South Carolina

Community colleges in South Carolina offer education opportunities that usually last no more than two years. Community colleges offer several options, including transfer programs to four year institutions or technical degrees and certificates for entry into the workforce upon graduation. Community colleges tend to have lower tuition than their four year counterparts, which is particularly appealing for individuals wishing to save money while receiving a quality education. Although community colleges are traditionally two year public institutions, some four year hybrid schools may also be listed below as they are still primarily associate degree granting institutions.
