Time Limitation for Program Completion

Georgia Northwestern Technical College will accept course credits from regionally and nationally accredited institutions of higher education without time constraints, except in some health programs. The institution does not limit the amount of time it will honor coursework taken at the college, except in some health programs. However, at the discretion of a student’s advisor, students may be required to repeat coursework where the course content has changed significantly. There is no minimum amount of time in which a program of study must be completed. The typical minimum program length is listed in the Curriculum section of this catalog. A student must take 25 percent of his or her program at Georgia Northwestern Technical College; however, the 25 percent requirement will be waived if the student completed a program for which standards have been implemented within the Technical College System of Georgia.
