Piedmont Technical College and Erskine College have signed an articulation agreement that will create a bridge program for students who would like to begin their studies at PTC, and then transfer to Erskine College. Because PTC is an open-admissions institution, it will also offer students who may require some academic preparation an alternative for admission to Erskine.
Bridge program participants will benefit from an array of services that will improve their transition from PTC to Erskine, including:
Joint admissions counseling with not only PTC advisors and Erskine College mentors
A waiver of the application fee to Erskine
Special consideration for scholarship opportunities
Invitations to Erskine recreational, campus and cultural events.
Requirements for participation in the bridge program are the same as with any transfer student wishing to attend Erskine College. Students must have a minimum of 30 hours completed to transfer and must submit an admissions application and all other standard paperwork in order to be considered.
