You're a first-time college student if you've never attended college and/or this is your first college experience since high school. There are a few simple steps involved in enrolling at Piedmont Technical College.
Select one of the following application methods:
You must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) immediately to receive lottery tuition or federal financial assistance. Do not wait until classes start! Click here to learn about financial aid opportunities and policies.
Once your application is filed, you must submit an official copy of your high school transcript or GED and any college transcripts. Transcripts may be delivered by mail, email or in person. If delivered in person the transcript must be sealed. If delivered via email, the transcripts must come directly from the academic institution.
Please review the following for more specific transcript submission details.
All Official College Transcripts should be submitted to the Student Records Office.
All Official High School Transcripts and GED Transcripts should be submitted to the Admissions Office. Contact the issuing institution to have copies sent to Piedmont Tech.
If you do not have a GED and would like to find an Adult Education Center within our service area, a list of centers can be found here.
Note: Although PTC prefers your official transcript for more accurate course placement, the college will accept your original High School/GED diploma as verification in lieu of the official transcript for Admission purposes. Diplomas must be delivered in person to the Admissions Office or County Campus location. Note that an official transcript may still be required to receive certain forms of financial aid.
If you completed high school outside the United States, please contact Renae Frazier about required documentation.
If you completed college/university coursework outside of the United States, your transcripts must be evaluated by a NACES (National Association of Credential Evaluation Services) member evaluator. A list of agencies can be found at www.naces.org.
Stop by your local Piedmont Tech location to take the placement test. Although appointments aren't required, please check the testing hours online and call Admissions at (864) 941-8369 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know when you're coming, and stop by our office in Room 101B on the Greenwood Campus when you arrive to check in.
To schedule a test appointment at any other PTC location, contact your local campus.
Unless waived by college personnel, you will need to take the placement test.
Placement Test exemption criteria:
New students need to meet with a New Student Advisor to discuss career goals and register for classes. Contact the New Student Advising Office or visit a campus near you. After your conversation, you'll register for classes and receive a printed schedule and a statement for tuition and fees.
Health Care programs are limited enrollment and have special admissions requirements that must be met before students can be accepted to the clinical phase of most programs.
