Georgia residents 62 years of age and older may take courses at West Georgia Technical College on a space available basis free of tuition fee. Such students will be responsible for all other fees, books and supplies. Seminars and special courses are excluded.

Miscellaneous Fees and Expenses

Books: Each student is required to purchase required books for courses. Costs vary, depending upon the course in which the student is enrolled.

Tools/Kits: In many training programs, students are required to purchase basic tools essential to the occupational field for which they are training.

Uniforms/Badges/Insurance/Liability Insurance: (can be purchased through the College) varies in cost according to program of study. In many programs students will be required to purchase uniforms and badges related to their programs.

Student Insurance

All students enrolled in credit programs and continuing education courses are covered by school accident insurance while on campus. NOTE: The insurance is only supplementary.

Financial Obligation to the College

Failure to meet financial obligations to the College may result in the student’s automatic withdrawal with no credit for the semester. Additionally, such a student may be denied enrollment in subsequent semesters. The College will withhold copies of educational records of students who have outstanding debts to the institution. After the college has attempted to collect a debt from a student, the debt owed to the college will be sent to a collection agency to collect the debt on behalf of the College. This collection attempt will include, but is not limited to, collection attempts made by phone calls, mailed notifications, placement with credit bureaus and, up to and including, placement with local magistrate court.

The College also makes attempts to collect financial obligations owed to the College prior to the start of classes for each semester so that the student will not lose course enrollment due to non-payment. The College accomplishes this by using a third-party messaging system that enables the College to contact many students at once. This is a complimentary service to the student as a reminder only, and it is the responsibility of the student to ensure all fees and tuition are paid in full prior to attending class on the first day of each semester.
