Admissions Checklist for Applicants Requesting a Student Visa

Due to the amount of time required for gathering, preparing, and processing the immigration paperwork, SGTC encourages all international applicants to apply at least 3 months prior to their desired start date.  For example, if a student wants to attend classes for the fall semester, he/she should submit all required documents in May.

  1. Submit a complete application for admission (and choose only one program of study).
  1. Pay a $25 non-refundable application fee in U.S. currency by money order or check drawn from a U.S. bank payable to South Georgia Technical College.
  1. Submit official transcripts from your high school (or GED) and all colleges attended by the application deadline. All transcripts must be received in envelopes sealed by the sending institution. Applicants with at least 30 semester credit hours or 45 quarter credit hours of study at one or more colleges do not need to submit a high school or GED transcript.
  1. Submit official entrance exam scores from either ACT, SAT, Accuplacer or COMPASS
  1. Submit financial statements.
  1. Submit a photocopy of the page in your passport that shows your full name. (List your name on the application as it is written in your passport.)
  2. If you are transferring to SGTC from another school in the U.S., notify the DSO from the transfer-out school that you want to transfer your SEVIS record and submit a completed SGTC Transfer Clearance Form. You must also provide a copy of your current I-20 form, I-94 form, and current visa. 
  3. Please see the International Student Admission Guide for additional information.
