Dear Seniors,

As we stated in our last letter, Mrs. Davis & Mrs. Frank-O’Connell are available to answer questions and offer support regarding dual enrollment and capstone projects until Mr. Michael Finkley begins at PSA on August 24th. If you would like to preview Mr. Finkley’s previous work feel free to visit this website: https://thefinkleyexperience.com/. Below is some general information. We will send updates as information becomes available and/or until Mr. Finkley arrives. 

Important! Please complete this survey (Capstone/Textbook Information) as soon as possible.  Textbooks will be ordered as received in the form.  We are hopeful that all orders submitted in the Google Doc by Monday at 4p will arrive PRIOR to the first day of classes.  

Capstone Information:

If you are already working with a Capstone advisor, please reach out directly if you have not received correspondence to date.  

College IDs:

TTC IDs: Students can schedule an appointment to get their student ID cards made here: https://www.tridenttech.edu/student/life/st_act.htm.

CofC IDs: Students can visit http://cougarcard.cofc.edu/online-photo-submission-for-new-students/index.php to upload a photo and receive a cougar card.

Textbook:

If you do not intend for PSA to purchase textbooks or you would like to view books physically, more information follows.  Otherwise, please be sure to input the necessary information requested from the above survey (Capstone/Textbook Information).

TTC’s bookstore is open to the public with appropriate social distancing measures (masks are also required for service). Students also have the option to order their books online and have them shipped: http://bookstore.tridenttech.edu.

CofC students can access information regarding their needed books by logging into their MyCharleston student account or by contacting the professor of the course to obtain the book information. After they have that info, they can purchase books through the CofC Barnes and Noble bookstore (https://cofc.bncollege.com/shop/charleston/home) or online through their choice of book vendor. 

Dual Enrollment Deadline Reminder:

Please be aware of the dual enrollment deadlines approaching for TTC and the College of Charleston.  TTC does not have a hard deadline, but highly encourages all students to register by August 17 to ensure getting a class.  The College of Charleston’s deadline is this Friday, August 15.  If you have any questions, please remember to reach out to the following:
