CCU and HGTC sign agreement in support of Honors students  

Coastal Carolina University’s HTC Honors College and Horry-Georgetown Technical College’s Honors Program have recently signed an agreement allowing students to transfer up to 18 credit hours of honors course work from HGTC to CCU.

Sara Hottinger and Laura SarvisStudents who graduate from the HGTC Honors Program with an Associate of Arts degree or an Associate of Science degree with a GPA of 3.5 or higher will automatically be accepted into CCU’s Honors College. Students who are in good standing in the HGTC Honors Program but have not graduated will be invited to apply to CCU’s Honors College.

Sara Hottinger, Ph.D., dean of CCU’s HTC Honors College, appreciates the strong relationship between the neighboring institutions and hopes this agreement will encourage HGTC honors students to continue their education at CCU.

“We have developed an agreement that recognizes the hard work and the focus on academic excellence demonstrated by HGTC honors students,” said Hottinger. “We look forward to welcoming these students into the HTC Honors College and working closely with them to ensure they complete their four-year degrees and graduate with honors from Coastal Carolina University.”

Students interested in applying to CCU’s HTC Honors College should indicate their interest when asked on CCU’s online application. Students who have already applied to CCU, but did not fill out the honors section of the application, are asked to email for instructions on how to submit an honors essay as a supplement to their CCU application.
