Transfer Student Admissions

If you have taken courses at another college or university, regardless of grades earned or how long ago you attended, you are a transfer student.

Follow These Easy Steps to Transfer to HGTC:

  • Step 1: Apply for Admission

    Complete an Admissions Application either online or in person at the Admissions office and submit the $30 non-refundable application fee.

  • Step 2: Submit Transcripts

    Ask your high school and college(s) to mail an official transcript to the HGTC Admissions Office; 
    Horry-Georgetown Technical College, Office of Admissions, 
    PO Box 261966, Conway, SC 29528-6066. 

    Official transcripts can also be emailed (by the high school and college) to or hand-delivered to the HGTC Admissions Office in a sealed envelope.

    If college transcript(s) show that you have completed at least one college-level math course and one college-level English composition course, with an earned grade of "C" or above in these two courses, you will not be required to submit test scores. Developmental/remedial college courses are not applicable nor transferable. If you do not have these courses, you can submit SAT or ACT test scores that are no more than 3 years old, or take the ACCUPLACER placement test to determine your course placement.

  • Step 3: Begin the Financial Aid process

    No matter how you intend to pay for tuition and fees, you should start the Financial Aid process when you apply to HGTC. Go to Federal Student Aid to create an ID then complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). HGTC school code - 004925.

  • Step 4: Meet with a New Student Enrollment Advisor

    After you have received an acceptance letter, schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor to help you create your class schedule.

    If you have questions about the advisement process, email the staff at

  • Step 5. Set up a Payment Plan

    Pay your tuition and fees by the deadline to avoid being dropped from classes.  Check the Academic Calendar for these important dates. There are a variety of payment plans listed here.

  • Step 6. Attend an Orientation Session

    Sign up for a New Student Orientation (NSO) session that you want to attend. If you can’t attend a session in person, you can participate online.

    Note: Once admitted, you will receive a Username and Password for access to WaveNet, the college-information site.  You will receive this information in your acceptance letter or by an Admissions Specialist at any of our campuses.  Your WaveNet account will allow you to check financial aid, account balance, grades, email, and much more. WaveNet Central or the Admissions Office can help you if you have questions regarding the navigation of WaveNet.
