3. Submit Transcripts

If you have attended another college and completed college-level coursework since attending Piedmont Tech, please submit an official transcript. 

Additionally, depending on your previous date of attendance at PTC, we may need an official copy of your high school transcript or GED from you if one isn't already on file. The college will allow you to submit your original diploma for verification in lieu of the transcript.

If you completed high school outside the United States, please contact Renae Frazier about required documentation.

Students with international college/university coursework must provide an approved credit evaluation, if transfer credit is desired.  The evaluator must be certified by NACES (National Association for Credential Evaluation Services). A list of agencies can be found at
