Important Graduation Information:

Horry-Georgetown Technical College is pleased to announce the Graduation Ceremony for the 2020-2021 academic year will take place on May 12, 2021 at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center. To provide a safe environment during the COVID-19 pandemic, up to three Commencement Ceremonies may be held. Tickets will be first offered for a 1:00 p.m. ceremony. If the 1:00 p.m. ceremony reaches capacity, tickets will then be offered for a 9:00 a.m. ceremony. If the 9:00 a.m. ceremony reaches capacity, tickets will be distributed for a final ceremony at 5:00 p.m. Once capacity for each ceremony is reached, ticket distribution will end so be sure to get your tickets early.
