   Dear Student,

   Welcome to Trident Technical College. I congratulate
you for your vision and persistence in pursuing your
educational goals. Not only do you recognize the value
of TTC’s quality education, you also understand that
education leads to opportunity, particularly during these
difficult economic times.
   Forward-thinking attitudes and tenacity are common
at TTC. You can see evidence of these characteristics in
our students and instructors, characteristics that impact
the content and delivery of our programs and courses.
Subsequently, TTC educates and trains individuals who
are equipped with the knowledge and skill sets to meet
the region’s work force demands. Whether you intend to enter the work force or transfer
to a four-year college or university upon completion of your TTC program, you will be
prepared to face challenges that lie ahead.
   TTC offers more than 160 programs of study that provide opportunities for professional
and personal success. These innovative programs focus on leading-edge fields in
business; aeronautical studies; humanities and social sciences; industrial and engineering
technology; health care; hospitality, tourism and culinary arts; law-related studies;
community, family and child studies; film, media and visual arts; and science and
mathematics.
   Now that you have recognized the opportunities afforded by education, TTC is
committed to helping you convert that opportunity into reality. We provide new student
orientation, one-on-one faculty advising, learning assistance, personal and career
counseling, and job placement assistance. Furthermore, we will help you explore financial
aid options and scholarships that can greatly reduce our already-low tuition and fees.
   Though the future is unpredictable, one certainty remains. Opportunity starts at TTC.

                                                  Sincerely,




                                                  Mary Thornley, Ed.D.

   Note: These specialty transfer programs may not result in an associate degree. In some cases, the programs
require more hours for graduation than financial aid will cover. See an advisor as early as possible for details.
For more information regarding transfer to four-year colleges and universities, contact Susan Norton, assistant
vice president of academic programs, or visit TTC’s Web site. See the Commission on Higher Education
