Trident Technical College classroom


The Lowcountry Graduate Center (LGC) is a state-funded organization dedicated to providing Charleston-area residents with convenient access to graduate-level academic programs.

In partnership with top-rated universities, the LGC offers both degree and certificate programs in a growing number of subject areas, including education, engineering, social work, business, health, and community wellness.

Our current graduate programs are offered through our founding institutions the College of Charleston, The Citadel, and the Medical University of South Carolina – as well as our partnering institutions, the University of South Carolina, and SC State University.

Recognizing that an educated populace is a key to economic growth and well-being, the LGC works with trusted advisors – business leaders, major employers, and academic institutions – throughout the Tri-County to identify which graduate certificates and degrees will help meet the workforce needs in the Lowcountry region.

The LGC aims to ensure that local students have access to the resources necessary for career advancement. If a required graduate program is not available through our current partners, the LGC has the ability to develop further partnerships with universities in South Carolina and beyond.

The Lowcountry Graduate Center is housed on the main campus of Trident Technical College in Building 920, in a contemporary teaching section  offering state-of-the-art, 21st-century technology, high speed internet connectivity for web conferencing, modern amenities, and a variety of student support services.  It is located at 2001 Mabeline Drive, North Charleston, South Carolina 29423-8067.  Entrance to the LGC cluster of classrooms and offices is on the north side of the building.
