HGTC Celebrates Highest Graduate Placement Rate
Horry-Georgetown Technical College (HGTC) is pleased to announce the highest graduate placement rate for students in the history of the College. The rate has continued to inch higher and higher over the last several years and reached 95% for the 2020-2021 academic year. The HGTC Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Development tracks the placement of students on an annual basis. The state technical college system-wide target for placement rates is 80%. HGTC exceeds that rate annually with the highest rate results calculated during the last academic year.
“HGTC was founded on a commitment to prepare people for jobs, sustain a high job-placement rate, and facilitate university transfers. The statistic means that 95% of students are either placed in a job or transferred to a four-year institution. We are very pleased with this achievement and continue to strive for the betterment of our students and community,” said Dr. Marilyn Murphy Fore, HGTC President.
