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.

WHAT is the ACCUPLACER Placement Test?

North Georgia Technical College uses ACCUPLACER placement tests to identify academic skills and needs.  These tests include sections on reading comprehension, writing skills, and basic math.  Algebra is required for some programs.  ACCUPLACER placement tests are taken on a computer; they are un-timed and testers can only use the calculator that is provided on the ACCUPLACER exam.

To request Disability Services for taking the placement test contact Kay Morgan, Special Populations and Retention Coordinator, at 706-754-7828 or kmorgan@northgatech.edu. Inquiries about receiving accommodations should be made well in advance of testing, as there is a request and documentation review process.

Remote Tests

ACCUPLACER enables NGTC to schedule Remote Tests for our students at other participating testing locations throughout Georgia and the U.S. Remote Tests benefit students who live an inconvenient distance from NGTC’s campus locations. NGTC will receive the scores as soon as you are done testing, eliminating the hassle of transferring scores for the student. Fees vary depending on testing location. Testing locations are typically colleges and universities.

If you are interested in a Remote Test at the NGTC site for enrollment in a another college, a small proctoring fee is applied for any non-Technical College System of Georgia schools. The college the student is seeking enrollment in is responsible for setting up the Remote Test with NGTC. Currently, only the Clarkesville, GA campus of NGTC proctors Remote Tests for students seeking enrollment in another college. For questions about Remote Testing, please contact Patrick Ledford-Career Placement and Development Director at 706-754-7728 or pledford@northgatech.edu
