Disability Services

Central Georgia Technical College recognizes the importance of encouraging and helping students with disabilities reach their full potential. The Special Populations Office coordinates services for students with disabilities in order to assist these students in realizing and maximizing their academic and personal goals. In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the College ensures that admissions, services, activities, facilities, and academic programs are accessible to and usable by qualified students with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are available to students who identify themselves as having a disability and as being otherwise qualified for admission to the College. Each student is responsible for providing documentation of his/her disability and requesting appropriate accommodations.



 


 

Nontraditional Careers

Non-traditional occupations are those in which one gender makes up less than 25% of the total number of workers. Examples of non-traditional careers for men include cosmetology, dental hygiene, early childhood care and education, and nursing. Examples of non-traditional careers for women include auto mechanic, carpenter, computer technician, and welder.

Promoting nontraditional career opportunities opens doors for every individual and breaks the mold of expectations in an atmosphere free from stereotypes of gender and jobs. The colleges provide support services to special population students including non-traditional majors in an effort to alleviate barriers that hinder successful completion of courses and employment.
