Student Success

At Southwest Georgia Technical College, we maintain our commitment to student success by offering an array of services that are accessible to all students.

Student Success Resources include tutoring, advisement and counseling, career exploration and learning assessments, book loans, a College Success course, scholarships, student success workshops, and more.

Additional support services may be available for students in special populations. For tracking purposes, a Single Parent is an individual who is unmarried or legally separated from a spouse, and either has a minor child or children for which the parent has either custody or joint custody or is pregnant. A Displaced Homemaker is an individual who has worked primarily without pay to care for a home and family; and for that reason has diminished marketable skills; has become dependent on the income of another family member, but is no longer supported by that income; and is unemployed and is experiencing difficulty in obtaining or upgrading employment. Services are also available for students enrolled in Non-Traditional Programs, those programs where one gender makes up 25 percent or less of the workforce of the corresponding occupation, such as females in welding, drafting or criminal justice and males in accounting, childcare or healthcare. For additional information about non-traditional programs, click here.

The Student Success Center is located in Building A, Room 240, across from the Tutoring Center. The Student Success Center is an inviting place for students to gather to study alone or in groups, meet with Student Affairs staff, attend a workshop, or just hang out between classes. For more information on the Student Success Center call 225-5060 or contact one of the staff listed below.

PEER MENTORING

A mentor is someone who uses his or her knowledge and experience to guide others. The purpose of the peer mentoring program at SWGTC is for students to have a “go-to” person who can help with any questions or challenges they may have while navigating through college life. There are many benefits for both mentors and mentees.

Benefits for mentors:  develop leadership and problem-solving skills, pass on knowledge, strengthen understanding through teaching, friendship, volunteer credit, looks great on a resume!

Benefits for mentees:  opportunity to learn from someone who has recently been there, extra academic and personal support and guidance from a peer, having a friend at school who can help you.

Are you interested in becoming a mentor or mentee?

Requirements for mentors:  must be currently enrolled at SWGTC with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and at least one semester completed; must be willing and able to meet with your mentee at least once a month.  Start by completing the Mentor Application Form.

Requirements for mentees:  must be currently enrolled at SWGTC; must be willing and able to meet with your mentor at least once a month.  Start by completing the Mentee Application Form.
