Competitive Selection

For information about the competitive selection process, please contact the Admissions Office at (478) 988-6800 or If you have specific questions about courses, program outcomes, or need advisement, please contact the CGTC instructor listed as the advisor for your intended program.

Admissions and Selection Process

Admission to Central Georgia Technical College and the competitive selection process are two distinct processes; students are responsible for understanding both.

College Admissions Process

To be accepted into the College and qualify for selection, students must complete all CGTC admissions requirements: please refer to the CGTC catalog for a full list of admissions requirements.

Competitive Selection Process

Acceptance into the college does not guarantee selection into a desired health science program. The competitive selection process is a separate process that must be completed to gain entry into the student’s program major. To be considered for selection for a seat in a competitive health science program, a student must:

  • Successfully complete all required courses for selection (see the Selection Requirements section below).
  • Take the required entrance test for the program. See Selection Handbook for details. Please note that beginning June 2, 2021, all competitive selection programs will require the Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).
  • When you are ready to compete for a seat in your desired program, submit a Competitive Health Selection form (the form is available online in the forms section of the Student Portal; go to, click Competitive Health Selection, complete the form, and click the Submit Application button once). A confirmation will be sent to your student email address. If you do not have access to the Student Portal, you may request a paper version of the form in the Admissions Office.
  • Wait for notification from CGTC’s Admissions Office. Once selections are made, all applicants will be notified by phone and email of their acceptance or denial for admission into a competitive program.

All steps above must be completed before the competitive selection deadline published for each program. A current Important Dates, Deadlines, and Information insert can be obtained in the Admissions Office, from your health program advisor, or by emailing
