About the Online Application
Welcome to Florence-Darlington Technical College (FDTC)! We are excited that you are interested in joining us! Students who plan to enroll in a certificate, diploma, or associate degree should complete the online application. The online application is free. Students that have applied and/or attended FDTC within the 12 Months are not required to complete another application. If you need to make changes to an application you submitted do not complete another application. Email the requested changes to Admissions@fdtc.edu.
  • All screens must be completed before the application can be submitted.
  • All fields marked with an " * " must be completed.
  • Remember to click the "Submit Application" button on the last screen to complete the online application process.
In addition to the online application, the following items are needed:
  • Submit proof of high school diploma/GED. The diploma/GED should be from a nationally accredited agency or approved by the Department of Education of the home state from which the diploma/GED was awarded.
  • Submit SAT or ACT scores. Test scores must be within the last five years. If you have never taken the SAT/ACT or if your scores do not meet entrance requirements, you may take the COMPASS. The COMPASS is administered Monday – Friday on the main campus as well as the Hartsville (843-383-4500); Lake City (843-394-7233); or Mullins (843-676-8567) site.
