Log Into Pathway

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.

Register for Classes

Within 24-48 hours (except weekends) of submitting the form, you'll be able to use the information found in your acceptance letter to log into your Pathway account and complete the registration process. For assistance, contact the Admissions Office at (864) 941-8369. Visit the links below for more information:

Pay Tuition

After you register, you can view information regarding your schedule and tuition by accessing your Pathway account.  Visit for details regarding tuition and other potential fees. Note: Transient students are not eligible for financial aid at PTC. You may also be able to use financial aid from your home institution. Please contact your home institution's financial aid office and ask if they participate in consortium agreements.

Online classes require at least one proctored assignment or exam to be completed. Electing to have the exam proctored by an institution other than PTC may result in additional charges with that institution.
