Newberry College Bridge Program

Piedmont Technical College and Newberry College have developed a partnership that creates a seamless pathway for students who would like to begin their studies at PTC, and then transfer to Newberry College.

Eligibility Criteria and Application Process

While at Piedmont Technical College, students can earn credits toward their associate degree while receiving guidance in transfer admissions, financial aid and scholarship opportunities from Newberry College representatives. Transfer consideration to Newberry College generally requires at least 24 semester hours of transferable work for traditional students and at least 60 semester hours of transferable work for students wishing to enter the fastFORWARD programs in Organizational Management or Early Childhood Education. Individual fastFORWARD students may have lesser requirements.

While it is anticipated that students will spend at least a full year at Piedmont Technical College, students meeting Newberry College’s freshman admissions requirements may transfer after one semester.

How to Enroll

  1. Apply to PTC either online or in person and identify yourself as a Bridge program student. Visit our admissions page for more detailed application instructions.
