ADMISSION INFORMATION

Augusta Technical College is committed to an "open door" admission policy in accordance with its stated mission and goals.

NET PRICE CALCULATOR

The Net Price Calculator provides students with an estimate of the costs for attending Augusta Tech. The estimate provided using this calculator does not represent a final determination, or actual award of financial assistance, or a final net price; it is an estimate based on price of attendance and financial aid provided to students in a previous year. The estimates are not binding on Augusta Tech or the State.

Competitive Progression Terminology
(for Allied Health programs):

Competitive progression is the use of criteria to select / rank students for advancement beyond prerequisite courses. A candidate for progression is a student who is enrolled in a program to take prerequisite courses required for competitive progression. The entrance term is the semester the program admits candidates to begin taking prerequisite courses. The progression term is the semester a student begins taking courses with academic program prefixes (i.e. CAVT, VAST, ECHO, OCTA, RESP, RADT, PNSG, SURG). Completion of pre-admission criteria does not guarantee admission to competitive admission programs. Complete program requirements are given in the Programs of Study section of the college catalog.



Regular Admission

Students who meet all requirements for admission into a selected program and are eligible to take all courses in the program curriculum are granted regular admission status.



Provisional Admission

Students who do not meet all requirements for a regular admission into a selected program are granted provisional admission status. Provisionally admitted students may take learning support classes, and certain specified occupational courses as long as class, pre-, and co- requisites are satisfied. All certificate, diploma, and associate degree program students initially admitted on a provisional basis must have satisfactorily completed the necessary prerequisite and learning support course work in order to progress through the State Standard Curriculum. Students may not be granted provisional admission to competitive admission programs or programs with wait lists.



Adult Education Referrals

Applicants who score below provisional-level placement test scores in English, Math, and / or Reading are referred to Adult Education for remediation. When remediation has been completed, as determined by Adult Education, the applicant will be eligible to retest.



Transfer Admission

Applicants wishing to transfer to the College must complete the Admission procedures. In addition, applicants who are in good standing at their previous institution may be accepted in good standing; applicants who are on academic probation at their previous institution may be accepted only on academic probation. Regular admission status is based upon the credential (degree, diploma, or Technical Certificate of Credit) being sought by the student.

Note: A student must complete in residence at least 25 percent of the credit hours for graduation.



Special Admission

Special admission is granted to applicants who desire to take credit courses for personal or professional benefit but do not plan to earn a degree, diploma, or technical certificate of credit. Admission will be granted on a space-available basis. Special admission students should be aware of the following admissions criteria:


  1. Transcripts are not evaluated except on request by students and/or college officials for proof of English, math, or other course prerequisites.

  2. International students may not be admitted.

  3. Students receiving financial assistance requiring certification of enrollment may not enter.

  4. Prerequisite and/or co-requisite course requirements will apply.

  5. Out-of-school applicants must be 18 years of age or older to be admitted.

  6. Students on academic suspension may not be admitted.

  7. A student may count up to a maximum of 25 hours of credit toward a specific degree, diploma. or technical certificate of credit program while in this status.

  8. Special admit students have the prerogative to apply for regular student status but must meet the requirements of the regular student admissions process.

  9. Special admit students receive credit for regular program coursework that is satisfactorily completed.

  10. Special admit students are not eligible for financial aid.
