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, online/credit card payment, 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.
  1. Submit official entrance exam scores from either ACT, SAT, or Accuplacer
  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. Please see the International Student Admission Guide for additional information.
