Horry-Georgetown Technical College Reviews
Rating 3.82 out of 5 523 reviews
I have been attending Horry Georgetown Technical College for the last 2-3 years.. I enjoy it a lot! The professors are always willing to provide extra help if needed and make sure the course is not too challenging to the point where you do not understand. I recommend attending here if you can!
I would say that HGTC Online Courses are average ... They are challenging but not too challenging ..
An overall fantastic way to build a strong academic foundation. The academics were considered rigorous enough for me to make up for an abysmal high school GPA and transfer to one of the highest-ranked colleges in my state. Great faculty and staff, and some great professors. A few instructors did not click with my learning style but still demonstrated flexibility and effort in helping students. I only had one truly terrible professor at this institution.
Online classes were mostly professional and sufficient. I only had one professor who had a difficult time maintaining communication via email. Naturally, some instructors had higher demands than others, but nothing unrealistic.
I tend to like and learn a lot from my professors. The college has upgraded their main conway campus and it now looks really nice.
This is where the reviews turn a little bad. HGTC is a great school. In-person most professors know what they are doing. Online classes are what most professors struggled with. They did not keep the same respect and way of teaching. Either due to it being a completely new system or laziness. Suddenly stopped teaching and instead gave work that had little to nothing to do with what we were learning. Those teachers that had experience did good, sadly those that were thrown into this situation because of COVID showed their inexperience and instead of understanding became inflexable and rude.
Horry-Georgetown Technical College is the school for you if you need to get a degree quickly and affordably. They are accredited and try hard to keep their accreditation. They are a little lax in their document processing side but it could be due to the number of students. I have had my fair share of bad times and good times at this school. It is affordable if you don't qualify for fafsa and have payment plans. Some teachers shouldn't be given the opportunity to work there but most are good at their job.
Great school with excellent student resources. Very supportive college in all that you do! Always remind you of upcoming events with lots of support

I'm a Freshman at HGTC, and have had a really wonderful experience so far! I love the amount of courses available online, as well as the ease of the student portal. Additionally, I've found it easy to find contact resources for any and all of my questions.
I took all my classes online! The Accounting and Business Professors are great! They help with whatever you need!
I have had a good experience with HGTC! It is a pretty good school to go to. I am an accounting major, and am 3 classes away from my degree! I am also thinking about getting my RN there as well then transferring to Coastal Carolina. I think the only thing that needs to change if having all classes available each semester.
I started studying there and found out I could not continue that semester, so I went to my instructors and asked them to let me withdraw. They agreed, but the administration and/or financial aid office had a different idea. They said that I owed money for my grants and they took it from my taxes that year, 500 big ones. Wow talk about kicking you while you are down. They lie, steal and cheat....and communication is not effective to say the least.
This is not my favorite question to answer because it was a basic set up and I prefer to learn in person.
This is my first year attending this school and I really enjoyed my time there. I did really well in my classes and had great professors along the way.
Being someone who also works, online courses are very important to me. My experiences with online courses as HGTC have been really great. I would recommend trying to take BIO and MAT courses on campus if possible, as the material can be more challenging to take online.
Overall, I've been enjoying my time at HGTC. As someone who primarily goes to community college for both the affordability and work flexibility, this school is a great option for both working students, and undecided/intended transfer students. Some staffing in certain areas could be improved, financial aid in particular-but if you're well informed yourself and keep on top of things, you shouldn't have any issues. Have also had great experiences with most of the professors here, very knowledgeable and willing to help. The free tutoring has helped me tremendously with certain classes too. If you're looking for more of a "college life" atmosphere, the Conway campus would likely suit you better as it offers more of a university feel and generally has a bit more activity.
