Student Reviews and Ratings for Technical College of the Lowcountry

Overall Rating:

Overall Rating:

If I could give 0 stars to TCL I would. The faculty at this college are extremely unhelpful and make you feel like an inconvenience to them. I needed help with my fincanical aid and all they did was keep forwarding my email around since nobody was able and willing to help me. Eventually they just stopped responding without even solving the issue. As a result I withdrew in the appropriate window from the college before ever even starting and then they thought it would be fair to charge me for classes I never attended. Now I am being harassed about owing them $74. Take your money to a credible college who is willing to help you and that is actually interested in you furthering your education with them.
