Online Learning Student Admissions

Successful online learners have access to the right computer equipment, a good understanding of the Internet, the ability to work independently, and great time management skills.

We recommend that you talk to an admissions counselor or faculty member before attempting an online course.

1. Apply for Admission

Select one of the following application methods:


Once your application is filed, you must submit an official copy of your high school transcript or GED and any college transcripts. You can download the forms you need below:

If you completed high school or 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

2. Apply for Financial Aid

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. 

3. Complete or Exempt the Placement Test

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 to let us know when you're coming, and stop by our office in Room 103B 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. Visit our Testing Center Web Site for more information on test exemptions and sample test questions.

4. Talk to an Enrollment Advisor and Register for Classes

Contact a campus near you to meet with an enrollment advisor and plan your schedule of classes.. After your conversation, you'll register for classes and receive a printed schedule and a statement for tuition and fees. To do this by phone, call our Admissions Office at (864) 941-8369 or (864) 941-8370.
