HGTC’s University Studies Certificate offers students interested in transferring to a senior college or university the opportunity to earn a certificate prior to transferring. This certificate offers foundational courses to prepare students for their next educational step, while allowing them to explore courses that could lead to a career of their choice. Students pursuing this certificate will complete 27 hours at HGTC prior to transferring to a senior institution.

Because transfer requirements vary, students should work with their Academic Advisor and the transfer institution to plan a specific program of study. Visit http://www.sctrac.org to view transfer programs at a number of senior institutions.
