Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program. Graduation rate excludes an extensive number of students. This indicator doesn’t take into consideration students of nontraditional enrollments - part-time students, students who enroll mid-year, and who transfer from one institution to another. So graduation rate alone can create a misleading perception. Completion rate in the form of total number of students receiving any types of awards/degrees creates a complete picture.

Very rude staff, no one seems to know what is going on, most unorganized college I have ever been to! This is why I decided to go to a different school. They tell you one thing and then turn around and change it on you and act like they never said that! Went in and asked what all we would need for in state residency and brought them in exactly what they said and they told us we needed to get other items as well, we did that and went back in and what we needed changed yet again! They will do whatever they can, even for locals, to make you pay out of state tuition to get the extra $$$$!!

I didn’t attend this school, however, when going to inquire about attending with my girlfriend the continuing education department had a lady who was very rude and belittled us for simply asking questions about the courses she desired to take. If you are interested in this school don’t go to the continuing education department on the market commons campus unless you enjoy being treated like you’re stupid.

When I was enrolled here from 2012 to 2015, I had a wonderful experience in school and with all of my professors. The problem is getting IN the school to start. It was a hassle getting financial aid straightened out with emails being sent out every time I submitted my forms, only to find out there was something else that I needed. Overall, my experience was fine once I was enrolled.I have always told my friends, family, and my team members at work graduating high school that "as long as you can push through financial aid, you'll have a great time learning from their professors," but quickly over the years, this school has shown how much of a drag it is to enroll with financial aid. I had two siblings that fought through and started classes (my sister was recently married, so now financial aid is hassling her again), and every single one of my team members that have tried to apply for any aid have been turned down. Without fail, after they have turned in their forms and asked the financial aid staff "Is there ANYTHING else I need to turn in before I leave," the response is always,"No, you are good to go," only for them to send an email out by the time they get home stating that they are missing something or they need something else. It seems to me that the financial aid staff is just there to say "No" like a grumpy old man and do nothing to aid the kids coming out high school.Horry Georgetown Tech must understand that they may be the only junior college in the area, but I will GLADLY begin suggesting to my team members to go to college online through Liberty or Regent University, where there is no hassle, financial aid actually aids people, and they stay on top of making sure students are successful in their education.

This is a great college. I was not sure what I wanted to do after high school but knew I wanted to go to college. Tom Jordan was a huge help in my decision making with associates in science. I will graduate and be a RN in 3 years total of school and have very little school debt. Why spend 20k + a semester when I can get a better education and make more money in the long term for cheaper at HGTC. Great place for anyone. Life changing decision to enroll.
