    3. Home school students may follow an alternative path for admission, described below. High school diplomas from unaccredited institutions, Certificates of Attendance or special education diplomas are not recognized for admission purposes. Students with diplomas from secondary schools located outside the United States must have their transcripts evaluated for equivalency by an approved outside evaluation organization.

      1. Submit a Certificate of Attendance form from the local superintendent's office or Georgia Department of Education verifying that (1) the parent or legal guardian notified the superintendent of intent to home school and (2) that the parent or legal guardian submitted the required attendance reports as required by O.C.G.A. § 20-2-690.
      2. Submit annual progress reports or a final transcript for the equivalent of the home-schooled student's junior and senior years. The final progress report should include the graduation date.

  4. Assessment

    1. The ability of a student to succeed in a program at Central Georgia Technical College is greatly determined by the math and language skills possessed by that student. Central Georgia Technical College is committed to assisting each student to achieve at their maximum potential. All students applying for diploma, degree, and certificate programs must be assessed prior to acceptance to a program of study at Central Georgia Technical College. Students will then be admitted in accordance with the academic standards applicable to that program.
    2. Students applying for degree and diploma programs and most certificate programs are required to submit scores earned on the ASSET or COMPASS admissions test, SAT, ACT or CPE scores obtained within the past five years. The placement test is administered regularly at Central Georgia Technical College.
    3. Official transcripts from a regionally or nationally accredited post-secondary institution recognized by the United States Department of Education documenting equivalent program-level English and math coursework successfully completed (C or better) may be used in lieu of completing the corresponding portion of the TCSG-approved assessment instrument.
  5. Categories of Admissions

    Minimum admissions requirements are established for each program.

    Students shall be admitted to a Technical College in one of the following categories: Regular; Provisional; Learning Support; Special; or Transient.

    1. Regular Status

      Students who meet all requirements for admission into a selected program and are eligible to take all courses in the program curriculum are granted regular admission status.
    2. Provisional Status

      Students who do not meet all requirements for regular admission into a selected program are granted provisional admission status. Provisionally admitted students may take learning support classes, and certain specified occupational courses as long as class pre- and co- requisites are satisfied.

      All certificate, diploma, and associate degree program students initially admitted on a provisional basis must have satisfactorily completed the necessary prerequisite and learning support course work in order to progress the curriculum. Students in this category may be required to complete a college success course.
    3. Special Admit Status (Non-credential seeking)

      Applicants who wish to take credit coursework, but are not seeking a certificate, diploma, or associate degree are granted Special Admit status.

  6. Student Types

    1. Returning Students

      1. Students desiring to re-enter Central Georgia Technical College after a term of non-enrollment must reapply for admission through the Admission Office.

To receive credit for any coursework completed at another institution while not enrolled at Central Georgia Technical College, students must provide official transcripts documenting courses completed. Students should verify their financial aid eligibility through the Financial Aid Office.
      2. Students dismissed or suspended from Central Georgia Technical College may apply to re-enter at the beginning of any term following the dismissal or suspension period.

    2. Transient Students

      A student in good academic standing at another accredited institution may be permitted to enroll as a transient student at Central Georgia Technical College in order to complete work that will be transferred to the home institution.

      1. Students must submit an application for transient admissions through either Central Georgia Technical College or the Georgia Virtual Technical Connection.
      2. Students must submit a Transient Agreement Letter from their home institution. The Transient Agreement Letter should verify that the student is in good standing and should list the courses the student is eligible to take.
      3. Transient Students must pay all Central Georgia Technical College fees. However, students whose Transient Agreement is from another college within the Technical College System of Georgia and the form indicates they are also currently enrolled at their home college during the same term, that student is not required to pay the Technology Fee at Central Georgia Technical College.
      4. Transient students must submit a Request for Transcripts form at the end of the term to have their grade sent back to their home institution.
      5. A current Transient Agreement Letter is required for each term of enrollment.
    3. Transfer Students

      Applicants to Central Georgia Technical College who have previously been enrolled at another accredited post-secondary institution will be considered for admission. Applicants must meet all admissions requirements of the program for which they are applying

Transfer students may receive advanced placement based on coursework successfully completed (grade of "C" or higher) at the previous institution(s) that is essentially the same in content as those required for the program of study at Central Georgia Technical College. Official transcripts must be provided for any courses and any institution for which transfer credit is requested.
      2. Transfer students will be admitted as program ready or provisional based on the coursework completed at the previous institution. Transfer students will be admitted in good academic standing upon their initial semester if their standing at the previous institution was good standing. In all other cases, they will be admitted on academic probation. To obtain good academic standing, transfer students must satisfy the conditions of Central Georgia Technical College's academic progress policy.
      3. All courses, other than general education core courses, must have been within the past five years from the date of admission and be approved by the Registrar. Based on certain program criteria, other course time limits may apply.
      4. A maximum of seventy-five percent (75%) of program course work may be transferred from other institutions.
      5. The Registrar's Office will award transfer credit for applicable courses and may consult with appropriate faculty in the final decision of transfer credit. Students wishing to transfer credit must complete a Request for Transfer Credit Evaluation form with the Registrar's Office.
      6. CGTC may award course credit for non-collegiate sponsored instruction (e.g., military training, corporate training, and standard industry certification/training/licensing). Students must provide official transcripts, test scores, certificates, and/or licenses as appropriate. Any credit awards will be granted in compliance with generally accepted guidelines such as those established by the American Council on Education (ACE) and in consultation with appropriate program faculty.

    5. Special Admit Students (Non-credential seeking)

      1. Applicants who wish to take credit coursework, but are not seeking a certificate, diploma, or associate degree are granted Special Admit status. The following specifics define the parameters of this status:
      2. May enroll in classes only on a space-available basis.
      3. Should adhere to the specific institutional prerequisite requirements when selecting courses.
      4. Will not be eligible for any financial aid.

      7. May apply up to a maximum of 25 quarter or 17 semester credit hours into a specific program for credential seeking purposes after achieving regular admit status. Should a Special Admit student decide to pursue a program, he/she will be classified as a transfer student and must meet the requirements set forth in the catalog. The number of hours taken as a Special Admit student in no way waives the requirements of the regular admission process.
    6. Pre-Release Training Students

      CGTC offers a limited number of technical certificates of credit programs through an interagency agreement between the College and the Georgia Department of Corrections (GDC). Admission requirements are established for these programs in order to maintain and promote a quality educational experience for each student. Program participation requires a high school diploma or GED, a minimum TABE assessment of 8.0 and an acceptable inmate disciplinary history (no disciplinary report within the past 12 months). All students are also SAGE tested to determine what path the inmate is to follow. The programs are intended to reduce inmate recidivism and enhance post- release employability. Therefore, these technical certificates of credit are terminal and are not designed to transfer into any of the College's diploma or degree programs. These programs are not eligible for Title IV federal financial aid or HOPE grants.

    7. High School Students

      High school students have the opportunity to earn college credit now through a variety of options:

      1. Dual Technical Credit (HOPE GRANT)

        The Dual Technical Credit offers high school student the opportunity to earn both college credit and high school credit toward graduation. Student may take technical courses within a technical certificate of credit (TCC) or diploma program. Core academic courses may not be taken under the Dual Technical Credit program. To cover the cost of the Dual Technical – HOPE option, students may qualify for the HOPE Grant which pays 90% of tuition.

      2. Dual Academic Credit (Accel)

        The Dual Academic Credit (Accel) program provides high school students with the opportunity to earn both college associate degree-level credit and high school credit for academic courses. Dual Academic Credit (Accel) Course Directory has been updated and is now available on GACollege411.org. This directory contains the high school courses and the college equivalents for the Dual Academic Credit program. When a course has been successfully completed, students can earn both college degree level credit and high school units toward graduation. Eligible students are awarded the Accel Award.

      3. Joint Enrollment

        High school students can take courses at Central Georgia Technical College through Joint Enrollment. Students receive college credit only for Joint Enrollment. Students may qualify for the HOPE Grand which pays 90% of tuition.

      4. Move On When Ready

        Move On When ready (MOWR) provides opportunities for high school junior and seniors to enroll full-time in post-secondary institutions to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. Funding for MOWR is provided through the high school full-time equivalent (FTE) program count. Students are eligible to participate in MOWR if they are entering 11th or 12th grade, as determined by the local school system, and spent the prior year in attendance at a public high school in Georgia. Participating students must have been enrolled for funding purposes during the proceeding October and March FTE program counts. Students who meet these qualifications can apply to Central Georgia Technical College for admission. Students seeking to enroll under MOWR must meet the admissions requirements as set by the College. Once admitted, the participating student will take all coursework at or through Central Georgia Technical College or online courses approved by the Georgia Department of Education.

      5. Private High School Students

        Students attending an accredited private school are eligible for Joint Enrollment under the regular college admissions requirements. The private school's accreditation must be approved by the Technical College System of Georgia. A private school student could enroll as a Dual Technical Credit student, if the private school agrees to offer high school credit for the CGTC course that the student completes. Private school students could be eligible for Articulated Course Credit if a signed articulation course agreement with CGTC is in place for the high school course and the student meets all of the requirements for articulated course credit.

      6. Home School Students

        Home school students are eligible for Joint Enrollment or Dual Enrollment if they met the College's admissions requirements. For students not in a home study program that is accredited by an agency specified in the approved list, the parent must furnish proof of compliance with B.C. 20-2-690. Students who are enrolled in an accredited home study program may be eligible for HOPE Grant (Dual Technical Credit) or Acc el (Dual Academic Credit) funds. Recognizing the uniqueness of each individual student, we encourage home school students and parents to contact the Office of Student Affairs for more information.

Program and Course Transfer Agreements

Central Georgia Technical College participates in cooperative programs with multiple colleges and universities. Articulation Agreements apply to Associate Degree graduates from CGTC and allow those students to receive transfer credit toward specific degrees at receiving institutions. The aim of these agreements is to allow our students to transfer the knowledge they have gained at CGTC into programs at other institutions of higher learning. Course Transfer is an agreement between Central Georgia Technical College and other Colleges and Universities to accept specific courses that students have taken at CGTC as substitutes for courses required at those institutions. For more information about these agreements, contact the Registrar at 478-218-3292.

The Mini-Core agreement is an agreement between the Technical College System of Georgia and the University System of Georgia. It guarantees the transfer of the courses from the BOR Transfer Chart (with a grade of C or better) from any TCSG college to University System of Georgia colleges and universities.

Readmission Guidelines

  2. Students re-entering after meeting conditions of suspension will re-enter on Academic Probation.
  3. Students are not eligible for readmission until the conditions of their suspension have been met. The suspension period is based on the academic grade point average and satisfactory academic progress.
  4. Students who are readmitted to the college with a cumulative grade point average less than 2.00 or who have a satisfactory completion rate of less than 67% of course work attempted will reenter on Academic Probation.

  7. Students must provide official transcripts documenting courses completed to receive credit for any coursework completed at another institution while not enrolled at CGTC.

Transient Student Approval

Transient student status is available for current Central Georgia Technical College students wishing to attend another accredited institution to complete courses for transfer back to CGTC. Students desiring to be approved for transient study must have at least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average and in good standing. There are some program specific courses that are not eligible for transient status. It is the students' responsibility to apply to the institution they wish to attend as a transient student and have a transcript sent to CGTC at the end of the semester in order for the grade to be issued as a transfer grade. Only grades of "C" or better are accepted as a transfer grade. Students wishing to be authorized for transient study should complete a Transient Status Request Form that can be obtained from the Registrar's Office.
Transient status must be approved by the Registrar's Office. If transient status is not approved, courses will not be eligible to transfer in to a CGTC program of study.

Senior Citizens

Georgia residents 62 years of age or older may request a waiver of tuition charges for regular and institutional credit courses. Mandatory fees, however, are not eligible for this waiver. This policy applies to regular and institutional courses only. It does not apply to continuing education courses, noncredit courses, or seminars. If tuition is waived under this policy, admission will be granted on a space available basis. Senior citizens must meet all other admission requirements as required in the college catalog and pay all fees other than tuition.

Non-Credit and Continuing Education

Health Technology Program Admission

Central Georgia Technical College's Health Technology programs are competitive in their acceptance. In addition to placement test scores, allied health applicants must submit an official copy of their high school transcript or GED, official copies of college transcripts (if appropriate), and proof of age. All of Central Georgia Technical College's allied health programs have specific admission requirements in addition to the College's admission requirements. Program admission packets are available on the College website, from program advisors, or the Admissions Office. The program admission packets contain detailed information that relates to the requirements for admission to the program of study. Students applying to any of the College's allied health programs should request an admissions packet specific to their chosen program of study.

Refer to the specific selection process listed on the Registrar's Section of the CGTC website, Health Technology Programs Competitive Selection Process Information link. Also, check the Registrar's Section for updates on the Health Programs of Study with Criteria for Progression for information on starting terms, required courses, etc.


Students are subject to a background check based on the respective clinical/medical facility's requirements. If the clinical/medical facility finds the student's background check to be unsatisfactory, the student will be prohibited from participating in clinical activities and will be unable to complete their program of study.

College Assessment Requirement

Central Georgia Technical College requires all new applicants to submit appropriate test scores or transfer college credits to determine program readiness.
To serve this purpose, the initial COMPASS test is a proctored exam and is offered free-of-charge once the application fee is paid. COMPASS testing may be by appointment or during posted assessment hours at many of the college's campuses.  The COMPASS scores indicate areas of strength and areas requiring remediation. If scores are not high enough for placement directly into the program of study, Learning Support coursework is required.

In lieu of COMPASS scores, applicants may submit official SAT, ACT or ASSET scores, provided these scores are no more than 5 years old. Students with appropriate transfer credits in English and math from a regionally accredited college may use those credits in lieu of taking the COMPASS. If an applicant's scores or transfer credits do not meet the College's minimum program requirements for entry, he or she must take the COMPASS test.

Compass Test: Evaluates incoming students' skill levels in Reading, Writing Skills and Math.

Retesting Policy: In an effort to improve COMPASS scores, students may retest one time per section. Retests must be taken more than seven calendar days after the initial test.

Required Scores:

Associate of Applied Science Degree
COMPASS: Reading 79 | Writing 62 | Algebra 37
SAT: Critical Reading 450 | Math 440
ACT: Reading 17 | English 16 | Math 19

Diplomas
COMPASS: Reading 70 | Writing 32 | Pre Algebra 26 | Algebra 28
SAT: Critical Reading 430 | Math 400
ACT: Reading 13 | English 12 | Math 17

Student Orientation

All applicants will be informed concerning their admissions to CGTC and are advised of orientation and registration procedures.

CGTC provides an orientation program to inform new and returning students on all areas of the College. This brief session introduces students to the facilities, rules and policies, work ethics, programs of study, and student activities. All students are responsible for information presented at orientation sessions. Guidance and counseling sessions are provided to students upon request. This service is designed to help students make appropriate adjustments to the College, instructional programs, and student services.

Registration Requirements and Procedures

Semester Registration for the upcoming semester opens at designated times on the College calendar of the current semester. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor and register promptly; in order, to secure the classes needed, and to avoid the classes being closed/filled.

Recruitment activities of the College are supported by the Admissions, Early Intervention Services, and Career Services Offices. Twenty-four hour access to admission materials is available on the CGTC website. Retention activities include working with students who have absentee problems, furnishing tutorial assistance, and making referrals for intervention.

Early Intervention Services

Early Intervention Services provides students a pathway to communicate needs and/or concerns that may be prohibitive as they pursue completion of a program at the College. This office also provides for students who need assistance with academic problems related to the College. The program helps students clarify educational and career objectives and develop effective study skills and habits.

Advisement Services

The Office of Student Affairs offers Academic Advisement and Registration assistance for new students, including assistance with program selection and available support services. Referral services are also offered to students facing special challenges or personal difficulties.

Email Communication

Email is the official medium for communication with students at Central Georgia Technical College. Each registered student is assigned an official email address by the college. Students are expected to maintain their accounts and check their email regularly so that new mail will be properly received and read. Certain communications may be time-critical. While students may redirect email from their official college email address to another address (e.g., @hotmail.com, @aol.com), the college is not responsible for the delivery of email by other service providers. Use of student email accounts should be in accordance with appropriate conduct as described in the Student Handbook and the Acceptable Computer and Internet Use policy. Any student who does not own a personal computer or who does not have an Internet service provider may access his or her email account from the library or from other designated computers at any of Central Georgia Technical College's locations.
