More than 30 colleges and universities were in attendance recently at a College Transfer Fair sponsored by Piedmont Technical College. The fair was provided to give students information on special bridge programs and transfer pathways.

Over the past several years, PTC has worked to partner with colleges and universities all over South Carolina to sign special bridge and transfer agreements. Students can now start work toward a bachelor’s degree close to home at Piedmont Technical College and take all the course work they need for the first two years of their degrees. Students in these programs save thousands on tuition, and move on to their destination schools knowing that their credits will transfer.

“I think knowledge is powerful and learning more about our transfer pathways can really help in making informed decisions about higher education choices,” said Dr. Kim Neal, transfer fair coordinator. “Students who were interested in learning more about Piedmont Technical College and our special transfer programs with many universities found a wide variety of options available.”

More than 70 students attended, speaking with representatives from such colleges and universities as Anderson University, Charleston Southern University, Clemson University, Coastal Carolina University, Johnson & Wales, Lander University, Limestone College, Newberry College, Presbyterian College, the University of South Carolina and Webster University.

Piedmont Technical College representatives and program advisors were also on hand to answer questions, and experts provided guidance on important areas of concern such as financial aid and scholarships.

“Piedmont Tech offers over 80 courses approved to transfer to any public university or college in South Carolina. We’ve also established specific transfer agreements with many of South Carolina’s major four-year institutions, and we’re actively working on more,” said Dr. Lissa Hayes, transfer coordinator. “These transfer agreements include special bridge programs that allow students to get a taste of a four-year college while attending Piedmont Tech as well as special pathways into fields like electrical engineering, education and business.”

For more information on transfer opportunities, contact Hayes at (864) 941-8456 or at hayes.m@ptc.edu
