Associate of Applied Science Degrees
West Georgia Technical College offers two-year associate degree programs in applied science
and the Associate degree in Nursing (ADN). These programs have been authorized by
College System of Georgia. Students finishing associate degree programs must
three-part Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency (CAAP) during the last
semester or the
next to last semester of their enrollment at West Georgia prior to graduation.
The CAAP tests mathematical reasoning, writing skills, and critical thinking skills. Those in Health Sciences AAS or ADN degree programs (Clinical Laboratory Technology, Dental Hygiene, Health Information Technology, Radiologic Technology, and Registered Nursing) will also be required to take the Science Reasoning portion of the CAAP. The CAAP is administered multiple times during
the fall and spring semesters to accommodate all graduating students. Students should see their academic advisors for further information.
West Georgia Technical College offers diploma programs in various occupational fields. The Technical College System of Georgia governs these programs by standards that provide uniform requirements for all technical institutes. Satisfactory completion of course work carries diploma credit. Diploma credit is transferable to other technical colleges within the statewide system.
