COVID-19 update (3/27/20):

Governor Brian Kemp issued an Executive Order yesterday stating "all TCSG colleges will remain closed for in-person instruction with limited exceptions through the rest of the Spring 2020 semester." We now will extend our online classroom instruction to the end of the semester which was previously announced yesterday as May 7. 

However, there are some limited exceptions noted by the Governor where in-person instruction may be allowed, and currently, our goal is to apply for these exceptions for our students needing lab hours. Modifications for the number of people gathered at a time in a lab is obviously one of the major hurdles we are trying to work through with the state. As soon as we have details regarding how this will work in each of our labs, our instructors will communicate that information with you. We, again, thank you for your patience as we work through numerous scenarios and make decisions that keep your best interest, academic success and well being as our top priorities. 

The college’s originally scheduled graduation will be postponed to a later date to be determined.

North Georgia Technical College is dedicated to providing for the language needs of bilingual students through the English as a Second Language (ESL) program. Language learners range widely, from very limited skills to moderate ability to extended fluency. Therefore, the college offers ESL classes at three levels—Beginning, Intermediate, and Advanced. ESL classes are offered at the NGTC Adult Education Center in Cornelia and Cornelia First Baptist Church.


Beginning ESL provides instruction in conversational English, in life-coping skills, and beginning basic reading and writing.


Intermediate ESL provides continued development of conversational English in life-coping skills. This level will improve the student’s speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills.


Advanced ESL provides instruction in grammar and usage, and effective speaking and writing in English.


Classes are offered at First Baptist Church, 325 Oak Street, Cornelia, GA 30531.
