  2. Submit an official transcript from an accredited high school, official GED® transcript, or official documentation of an approved high school equivalency assessment. If transfer credit is desired for courses taken at other post-secondary institutions, official transcripts must be sent directly from the issuing school or agency to Georgia Northwestern Technical College. In an effort to remove hurdles for our students during the COVID-19 pandemic, an unofficial transcript will be accepted until the official copy can be obtained for Summer and Fall 2020 semesters.
  3. For Summer and Fall 2020 applicants,testing on campus has been suspended due to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Information on other placement score options can be obtained from any Student Help Center.
  4. Applicants for certain health programs are required to complete additional admission procedures. These requirements are outlined in the individual program curriculum under Academic Affairs, Divisions of Health Technology and Nursing and Allied Health.
  5. All new students and all returning students who have been out over one year must attend a virtual orientation. Students must register online to attend a virtual New Student Orientation.  After new students have submitted all required documents needed for admissions to GNTC and have been accepted to attend the college, information about the orientations, and about how to register for an orientation session, will be provided to them via their student email account.

Note: Test scores submitted must meet standard program stipulations and program level requirement. If scores are not appropriate, applicants will be required to take a scheduled placement test.
