New Student College Admissions

  • Step 1. Apply for Admission

    Complete an Admissions application either online or in person at the Admissions office and submit the $30 non-refundable application fee.

  • Step 2. Submit Test Scores 

    To assist students in selecting courses, advisors will review high school transcripts, GED Performance and/or placement scores such as ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer.


    Students who decide to take the ACCUPLACER placement test must first participate in The Start Right Experience, which is offered in-person or online. The Start Right Experience is designed to ensure success in placement testing and prepare you to enter the college environment.

    The Admissions Office will use Multiple Measures as a means for admission and placement during the enrollment process.  High school transcripts and/or GED Scores will be reviewed by admissions/advising staff to admit students and place students into college-level courses when applicable

  • Step 3. Submit Transcripts

    Ask your high school and/or college(s) to mail an official transcript to the HGTC Admissions Office;
    Horry Georgetown Technical College, Office of Admissions,
    PO Box 261966, Conway, SC 29528-6066.

    Official transcripts can also be emailed (by the high school or college) to transcripts@hgtc.edu or hand-delivered to the HGTC Admissions Office in a sealed envelope.
