Non-Discriminatory Admissions Policy

The Admissions Policy of the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia and procedures related thereto, assure the citizens of Georgia equal access to the opportunity to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to secure personally satisfying and socially productive employment. By design and implementation, the policy and procedures governing admission to Georgia’s network of technical colleges will adhere to the following tenets:

  1. Not discriminate against eligible applicants regardless of race, color, creed, national or ethnic origin, gender, religion, disability, age, status as disabled veterans of the Vietnam Era, or citizenship status (except in those special circumstances permitted or mandated by law).
  2. Increase prospective students’ opportunities.
  3. Guide the implementation of all activities related to admission to the college and its programs, to student financial aid, and to the recruitment, placement, and retention of students.
  4. Complement the instructional programs of the college.

Applicants furnishing false, incomplete, or misleading information will be subject to rejection or dismissal without a refund.

Official documents and credentials submitted to the College for admission and placement purposes become and remain the property of the College and will not be returned to the applicants, duplicated, or transferred to another institution.

The issuing school or agency must send official transcripts, test scores, or other required documents to the following office:

Office of Admissions

Columbus Technical College

928 Manchester Expressway

Columbus, GA 31904-6572

If applicants submit the documents in person, documents must be in an unopened envelope officially sealed by the issuing school or agency.
