College of Charleston Collaboration

The College of Charleston Collaboration provides prospective freshman transfer students with the opportunity to make a successful transition from Piedmont Tech to the College of Charleston.

This program is designed to provide students with advising and academic support to help them transfer to the College of Charleston.

Eligibility Criteria and Application Process

College of Charleston Collaboration is open by invitation to freshman applicants who choose to attend Piedmont Technical College during the fall semester and who have been offered a freshman transfer opportunity to the College of Charleston. Students must also meet minimum placement criteria.

Students are expected to earn a minimum of 24 transferable credit hours at PTC following high school graduation. The minimum GPA required is 2.6 (in-state) and 3.0 (out-of-state). If the student does not have the requisite grade point average and earned hours at the end of the second semester, he/she may choose to defer the admissions application to a subsequent semester.

Students will pay tuition and fees for full-time enrollment to CofC. Students who have filed the FAFSA should add College of Charleston to the list of colleges to receive their financial aid report.


How to enroll

To enroll, 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.
