You are responsible for making the transcript request to your former school. We do have transcript request forms available if you would like to use them.
Typically, core courses taken at previous colleges that are accredited by an agency that TCSG will allow us to accept will transfer as long as the student made a C or better. Occupational courses taken within the last 60 months will also more than likely transfer as long as a student made a C or better. However, we cannot give definite answers about the transfer of credit without actually seeing the official transcript.
Yes. Students must provide official high school transcripts unless they have successfully completed a Bachelor’s Degree from an accredited college or university.
Yes. North Georgia Tech requires an official, sealed transcript from all colleges attended.
Yes. You must request that an official GED transcript be sent to our school. We can allow you to start classes with an unofficial GED transcript, but a hold will be placed on your records until we receive your official transcript.
It depends. NGTC is allowed to accept high school diplomas and GED’s awarded through schools who are accredited by one of the following agencies:
The name of the accrediting agency must match exactly one of the agencies above. Many accrediting agencies have similar names, but we are only allowed to accept the ones listed above.
Accuplacer is a placement exam and is used to determine your strengths in the areas of Reading, Writing, Math, and Algebra. If you do not make the required Accuplacer scores to enter your program, you may be required to perform Short Term Remediation through our Student Success Center, take a Learning Support class, or do some refresher work in our Adult Education Department. Rarely does the Accuplacer exam completely exclude a student from enrolling in classes at NGTC.
You may review the requirements to be coded “in-state” here – Residency Policy.
Unfortunately, yes. Students who have had a break of enrollment since January 2012 must come in under the new law, and therefore must prove residency using one of the items listed above.
A Tuition and Fee Sheet can be found on the NGTC website under Tuition and Fees.
NGTC offers the HOPE Grant, the HOPE Scholarship, the PELL Grant, the Nelnet Payment Plan, Federal Direct Student Loans, and WIA. To find out more information about these programs, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 706-754-7700, or visit our website at https://www.northgatech.edu/financial-aid/pay-for-college
These questions will need to be addressed to the Financial Aid Office since this differs for every student.
The campus bookstore can give you information on the cost of the textbooks needed for your classes. Students who receive financial aid may be able to use a part of their award to pay for their textbooks.
Having access to a computer is required in most programs. Each NGTC campus has computer labs and libraries with computers that students can use to complete their course assignments if they don’t have their own computers.
