High School Seniors

PTC Welcomes the Class of 2019

Early Application: get started >>

Congratulations. As you complete your senior year of high school and prepare for the first year of college at PTC, there’s a lot to get done. To help you keep track of opportunities and deadlines, we’ve created this special place on our website just for our gradyear graduates.  Here you can find what you need to get ready for the start of class and maybe win a few dollars to pay for your PTC education. Contact Kristy DeAngelis with any questions you may have; Deangelis.Kristy@ptcollege.edu.

Let’s get Started.


Start with a campus visit to talk to a PTC admissions coordinator. This is when you learn about PTC, our programs, our student services and campus activities.  It’s when you can visit our academic buildings, talk about PTC’s residence halls and off-campus apartments, meet students and instructors, and learn about the grants, loans and scholarships that can help you pay for college.

Housing Students – for Your Eyes Only

For some students “living at school” is essential to making the most of the college experience. If you are interested in learning about the three residence halls on PTC’s campus, or the off-campus housing supervised by PTC’s Housing Department, join us for PTC Housing Day.

Our next open house is Saturday, June 22, 2019.
