Open Admissions

Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College operates as an open admissions college as required by the 1976 Code of Laws of South Carolina, as amended. Consistent with statutory requirements and existing policies, OCtech makes every effort to minimize geographic, financial and scholastic barriers to post-secondary curricula and services offered by the College. A high school diploma (or GED certificate), though desirable, is not a prerequisite for admission to the College, but may be required for specific curriculum admission and federal financial aid.
