Horry-Georgetown Technical College
ROI was very important to me. HGTC has provided me with a 2.5-year college degree for a very minimal investment. Job prospects in my industry are great, which puts me in a position to repay student loans quickly so I’m not still digging out from debt a decade down the road. I will be in a much better financial position without all the debt I would have incurred had I opted to go back to a four-year college.
