Dual Enrollment (PACE, Technical Scholars and Early College High School)
Students in Dual Enrollment can take either University Parallel (86 courses approved by the Commission on Higher Education for transfer from two-to four-year public institutions-go to www.sctrac.org for details) or Applied Technology (courses that may or may not carry transfer credit to a four-year college); however, they must meet the same admissions criteria as any other student. More information about these programs can be found at www.hgtc.edu/highschool. The following criteria must be met for acceptance into Dual Enrollment:
- Be recommended by the high school guidance counselor, principal or other designated school official as someone who can benefit from the program;
- Submit a completed PACE application, including permission from a school official and a parent or guardian to attend HGTC; and
- Submit qualifying SAT, ACT or college placment test scores or meet other Multiple Measures as determined by the College
Note: Dual Enrollment students who continue their education at HGTC must submit the HGTC Dual Enrollment Update Application (fee waived if within 12 months) to identify a major (program of study) and be recognized as a college student for financial aid eligibility. Students are responsible for meeting admissions requirements and checking with the institution(s) to which they plan to transfer after high school to ensure transferability of courses from HGTC.
