A Message from the President, Neyle Wilson

Greetings, students, partners and friends! President Wilson

For more than four decades, Horry Georgetown Technical College has been a leading South Carolina college, where quality and affordability meet.

Offering more than 70 associate degree, diploma and certificate programs, as well as a diverse and rapidly-expanding list of corporate and business training options through our Workforce Development Division, HGTC has built an international reputation for preparing the finest graduates and employees to meet the needs of business, industry and government.

While our students, faculty and staff represent more than 30 countries, and come to the College from all over the United States, we remain a true community college, with more than 90% of our more than 8,500 students living, working and remaining in South Carolina. In fact, 4 out of every 5 students at HGTC are residents of Horry or Georgetown County. And while we've grown at an exponential rate, our outstanding faculty and staff are committed to treating each and every student as an individual.

When it comes to curriculum, HGTC is on the leading edge. We are an internationally-renowned institution, and offer career programs ranging from Healthcare to Industrial Technology to Information Technology and more. We also feature a thriving University Parallel program for those seeking to transfer to other institutions to complete a Baccalaureate degree. What's more, many classes are conveniently available through Distance Learning and over the Internet.

Plus, we offer tuition that's among the most affordable in the State and roughly40%of what's found at most four-year institutions. In addition, we are ideally located, with three campuses in Georgetown and Horry County,and landscapes ranging from the majestic Live Oaks of Conway to the waterfront of Georgetown to the white sand of Myrtle Beach.

I encourage you to contact us or visit the Admissions website for more information about the College to find out why we've been one of the fastest growing colleges in South Carolina for more than a decade. It's students first at Horry Georgetown Technical College and we hope you soon discover that for yourself. Come, Discover Tech!
