Tri-County Technical College’s mission is to serve the communities within Anderson, Oconee, and Pickens counties. The College is also part of a state-wide system of sixteen technical colleges. We enroll 6,000 - 7,000 students each year in more than 70 major fields of study, including engineering technology, industrial technology, business, computer and information technology, public service, human services, healthcare, and university transfer programs. Developmental courses are offered for those who need to brush up on basic academic skills. The Continuing Education Division also offers personal and professional development non-credit classes in technical, business, healthcare, and personal interest areas to more than 10,000 community members each year. The main campus is located in historic Pendleton, South Carolina. The College also has four community campuses in Anderson, Easley, Oconee, and the Industrial Technologies Center in Sandy Springs.
The Upstate of South Carolina is home to more than 200 international companies, the I-85 corridor, and a vibrant quality of life. It's easy to see why the Upstate is one of the fastest growing regions in the nation. The College is nestled in the foothills of the scenic Blue Ridge Mountains, surrounded by the many opportunities afforded by Lake Hartwell, and within two hours of Atlanta, GA and Charlotte, NC. South Carolina's coastal towns and beaches are approximately three and a half to four hours away.
