Additional Expenses above Tuition and Fees

Credit by Examination

Students who wish to receive credit by exam will be charged 25% of tuition per credit hour of the course for each class they wish to exempt. For more information, please read the Credit by Examination in this handbook.

Books and Supplies

Bookstores are located on Catoosa, Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield Murray campuses. Bookstore hours are posted at each bookstore and can also be found on the GNTC website. Bookstore operations are managed by Follett Corporation. Bookstores have new and used books, supplies and other items for sale. Refunds are available in accordance with Follett Corporation policy. The Follett Corporation refund policy is posted prominently in the campus bookstores. Each campus bookstore will be available throughout the term for students to sell their books back to Follett Corporation. The buyback price of the book is based on many factors, including the condition of the book, the edition, and the current demand for the book.

Tools

Some programs require that students furnish hand tools. These are areas where a person is expected to have tools upon employment. The required tools may not constitute a complete set but will be adequate to begin work in the field of study.

Online Learning

GNTC does not charge higher tuition for online courses. There is no additional fee for assigning a unique user name and password. GNTC students are not charged a proctoring fee if testing at a GNTC location or any campus within the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). Proctoring fees may apply for students receiving services at sites other than GNTC or a TCSG college. These proctoring fees may range from $10-$50.
