Fantastic faculty and staff! I loved my experiences there, and I wish I could stay there for all four years, but I have to leave and transfer to get my bachelor's degree. The college is both a phenomenally unique institution to start college with a more affordable price! I continuously recommend PTC as a place to complete, to continue, or to begin college studies.

Piedmont Tech is definitely a great place for someone to to start their college experience. I myself am transferring to a four year college within a year, but I'm glad I decided to start my higher education here at PTC. The facility are very helpful and involved with the students on a personal level, and the technology is made very user friendly especially for newcomers. Keeping track of your schedule and assignments is incredibly easy, and teachers are very informative about due dates and requirements as well. There multiple campuses throughout SC, making it easy for people who would otherwise have to travel, and the classes you will take at the main campus in Greenwood are almost exclusively science labs and other hands on courses. All and all Piedmont Tech makes for a good college for any beginner or student who loves to keep things simple and personal to their academic life.
This is my first time attending this college. As a student each and ever teacher is willing to help out every student as much as possible so that they can have a better, brighter, and successful life after graduating. This school provides a lot of program especially for my major, nursing. I chose this school because I feel as they can help me through every semester as my years go by. I couldn’t come across any other university or college who didn’t have these opportunities nor programs I was looking for, I advise any other new in-coming students to turn and make Piedmont Technical College their top #1 school on their list of schools, this is one school you’ll never forget.
