High School Students
Southwest Georgia Technical College offers associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates in four career areas:
You can begin college before you complete High School! Contact your High School Counselor for more information.
Post Secondary Credit Options
The Post Secondary Credit Options program gives students a career path with a minimum of course duplication, yet still allows further education on the collegiate level if desired. Students enrolled in this program are subject to the policies of both Southwest Georgia Technical College and their respective high school.
The Dual Enrollment Program allows public school students to receive Carnegie unit credit from a public high school and postsecondary credit hours from Southwest Georgia Technical College for the same course. Any student enrolled in a Georgia public high school who is classified as a junior or senior and meets the dual enrollment and admission requirements of Southwest Georgia Technical College is eligible to participate in the Dual Enrollment Program. For more information, students should contact their high school counselor.
SWGTC has established articulation agreements, which are reviewed and updated annually, with interested service area high schools.These agreements help to ensure that students receive course credit when established competencies have been achieved in selected courses. Students who enroll within 18 months of high school graduation are eligible for articulation credit.
SWGTC will validate student competencies before awarding articulated credit for competencies learned in high school by administering the final examination/exemption examination for the course to be articulated. Students must score 70 or above on the exam in order to receive articulated credit.
The articulated credit is only awarded if the student needs it to complete their program of study. The awarded credit is indicated by the letters "AC" on the official transcript. The hours for the articulated course will not be computed in the grade point average or appear on the quarterly grade report.
