The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education (CHE) has launched a new website called GetSmartSC.com featuring the Palmetto Calculator. These tools are designed to place information in one, easy-to-use location for students and families and allow them to find information and estimate the cost of education as they plan for their academic future in South Carolina.


    GetSmartSC.com pulls resources from all over the web into one comprehensive, easy-to-use tool for students and families to be able to find all of the college information they are looking for, without the hassle of endless searches.


    The new Palmetto Calculator, available at https://GetSmartSC.com/ palmetto_calculator/ allows students to compare the financial cost of different colleges and academic majors. The ability to input any state, federal or private scholarships may also help demonstrate that higher education can be more attainable than anticipated.
