A message from the campus:
Effective January 1, 2012, all students applying for in-state tuition must provide validation of lawful presence in the United States. The following documents will serve as proof of lawful presence in the United States and documentation will be required before you are eligible for consideration of in-state tuition:
Any student who cannot be verified as lawfully present in the United States is not eligible to be considered for in-state tuition, regardless of how long he or she has lived in Georgia. In addition to being lawfully present in the United States, students must meet the in-state tuition requirements as outlined in TCSG Board Policy and Procedure V.B.3 to warrant an in-state classification. Students that are initially classified as out-of-state and successfully petition to have their residency changed to in-state also have to meet the verification requirement.

Students must take a placement exam, submit SAT, ACT, ASSET, or COMPASS scores or transfer college credit from an accredited college or postsecondary institution. (See Exemption for Placement Testing)
Applicants enrolling in programs in the areas of Health Technologies and Nursing and Allied Health Technologies are required to complete additional admission procedures.
6. An online orientation program must be completed by new students and by former students absent from Georgia Northwestern Technical College more than one year. The orientation program is designed to acquaint students with college policies, procedures, and services and can be accessed at gntc.edu.
Please note: Test scores submitted must meet standard program requirements and must have been taken within the previous five years. Scores must meet the program level requirement. If scores are not appropriate, applicants will be required to take a scheduled placement test.
