At South Georgia Tech, we want to make your college experience as stress-free as possible. The Student Services department will assist you in the application process, test you, and offer college and career guidance. To apply, just obtain an application and submit it with a one-time application fee. If you have not taken the SAT or ACT, you will be scheduled to take the ASSET test. This test determines your skill level to make your experience at South Georgia Tech the best it can be. If you are unsure of what educational path you want to take, career counselors will help you determine what you are best suited for.
If you think you can’t afford college, think again! South Georgia Tech offers both the HOPE Grant and the HOPE Scholarship. Both HOPE programs offer tuition assistance and a quarterly book voucher. What’s the difference, you ask? The HOPE Grant applies to students who are enrolled in a diploma or technical certificate program and most Georgia residents are eligible.
The HOPE Scholarship applies to students pursuing an associate degree. To qualify for the HOPE Scholarship you must be a Georgia resident and have maintained a “B” average in high school or prior post-secondary coursework that you have completed.
But that’s not all—other forms of federal and state financial aid are also available. Just visit our Financial Aid office today!
Here at South Georgia Technical College, we know that you not only want a quality technical education, but you also want to experience the real college life. That is why we offer on-campus housing and many student activities.
South Georgia Tech is one of only two technical colleges in the state of Georgia to offer on-campus housing and a full-service cafeteria. Private rooms and semi-private rooms are available plus we offer several different meal plans for residential and commuting students. So, if you are looking for a home away from home, you will find it here.
After class, there are many opportunities for students to gain vital leadership skills and socialize with other students by being involved in Phi Beta Lambda (PBL), Student Leadership Council (SLC), Skills-USA VICA, and the National Vocational Technical Honor Society (NVTHS). Most clubs offer the chance to compete with other technical college students at local, state and national levels.
You won’t get bored at South Georgia Tech. There are many fun activities to keep students entertained. The SLC schedules many different activities on campus, such as virtual NASCAR ®, blood drives, Fun Flicks, and other activities. Also, the Campus Life department offers intramural sports for all seasons. You can find students participating in flag football, basketball and softball. Also, students enjoy the softball field, tennis courts, weight room, and gymnasium between classes.
Speaking of sports, did you know that South Georgia Technical College is the only technical college in the state of Georgia to compete in the Georgia Junior College Athletic Association? The JETS and LADY JETS, SGTC’s intercollegiate basketball teams, are also members of the National Junior College Athletic Association. The men’s team was established in 2001 and has reached national rankings in the NJCAA.
If you need a little rest and relaxation after all of this activity you can retreat to Hicks Hall which houses a newly renovate student center and lounge area. You can play cards, billiards, ping-pong, foosball, work out in the exercise room, or just hang out and relax. An exercise and weight room is also available.
For more time to yourself, relax by the fully stocked fishpond on the south end of the campus or have a picnic in Tom Gailey Park. The choice is yours!
