Denmark Technical College follows an “open door” policy and imposes reasonable standards for admission to the institution. However, the criteria for entry into individual programs vary. All new students, both freshmen and transfer students, must submit an application to be admitted to a program of study by the Admissions Office.

Admission to a specific program requires that the applicant has appropriate educational preparation, satisfactory placement test scores, and all admission requirements completed. Students having academic deficiencies will be required to enroll in the Transitional Studies Program. This is determined by the American College Testing Program’s ASSET/COMPASS examination, which is administered to all students. Educational programs have minimum test score requirements.

These requirements, and any others necessary for entrance to a specific program of study, are stated in each program of study.

Admission Requirements

Applicants for admission to the College must be 18 years of age or older. A high school diploma or GED certificate, though desired, is not a prerequisite for college admission but may be required for specific program admission Under certain circumstances, an applicant under the age of 18 who has not graduated from high school may be considered for enrollment through special arrangements between the College and the principal of the school where the applicant has been, or is enrolled. In order for a student who does not have a high school diploma to receive Title IV funds, they must meet the College’s policy and procedures for equivalency of a high school diploma.


Next Steps

As an institution within the South Carolina Technical and Comprehensive Education system, Denmark Technical College is committed to keeping the costs of attending the college to a minimum for students.
