The HGTC/CCU Bridge Program is a year-long, comprehensive, rigorous, residential program that prepares students for the rigorous curriculum at CCU. The Bridge Program provides an opportunity for participants to improve their academic skills and meet the admission requirements of Coastal Carolina University.

Bridge students take all their courses on the HGTC campus, but are also enrolled in the CCU UNIV-110 First-Year Experience course. This class is included in the program without additional charge and is a CCU graduation requirement in which students must earn a minimum grade of C.

By the end of the fall semester, students must earn a minimum of 6 transferable credit hours and achieve 2.0 GPA in order to remain in the Bridge Program. Students not meeting these requirements may be ineligible to remain in the Bridge Program and campus housing after the fall semester.

By the end of spring semester, students must earn a minimum of 21 transferable credit hours and achieve a 2.25 GPA from HGTC in order to successfully transfer over to CCU for Fall. Students earning a minimum of 21 transferable credit hours and achieve at least a 3.0 GPA from HGTC, may be eligible for a scholarship once enrolled full-time at Coastal Carolina University.
