    Mentor Connections

    The WGTC Mentor Connection is built on the philosophy that the personal connection between a mentor and student will support student self-advocacy leading a determined student to graduate from West Georgia Technical College. The positive connections that students make at the College foster the creation of a safe and comfortable learning environment.

    Compass Boot Camp

    WGTC offers Compass Boot Camps during the course of each term. These sessions allow prospective students to brush up on their English, Reading, Math, and Algebra skills and practice in their areas of weakness prior to taking their Compass Entrance exam or prior to retaking the exam before they begin classes with WGTC. Sessions last up to three hours and prospective students may attend at any location.
