Register for classes at your high school with your school counselor. For summer classes, online courses, or PTC classes, register through Piedmont Tech's Dual Enrollment Office by calling (864) 941-8315.

Not all PTC courses are open to dual enrollment students due to special program requirements.  For example, PTC limited-enrollment health care programs have special entry requirements, including a minimum age limit of 18.

Please note: Because high school calendars may not match the Piedmont Technical College calendar, if you register to take dual enrollment classes taught at a PTC site, you may be required to attend classes at PTC on days that classes are not scheduled to be held at your high school (example: Spring Break).

Obtain Your PTC Pathway Account Information

PTC Pathway allows you to go online to access your course schedule, grades, academic records, tuition balance, financial statements, and certain student services. At the time of enrollment, the college will assign you a random PTC ID (P#) that is used to log into your PTC Pathway account. The password is the first and second letters of your last name (lower case), a period, and your birthdate formatted as MMDDYY. Example: John Smith was born October 5, 1980. His password is sm.100580.

Purchase Textbooks

If textbooks are necessary, check with your high school counselor for purchase information. You can also check out our online bookstore to purchase what is required.
