West Georgia Technical College offers support services designed to remove academic, career and economic barriers. Our services are designed to foster success and contribute to the self-sufficiency of students who are members of the special populations group. Services are available for students, based on eligibility, and their self-identification in one or more of the following special population identifications:
- Students with documented Disabilities (see Accessibility Services for more information)
- Students with limited English proficiency (students who have a language other than English as their primary language)
- Single Parents (may be divorced, widowed, legally separated, never married, or a person who is single and pregnant)
- Displaced Worker (out-of-work due to layoffs, relocation of company, or downsizing)
- Homeless (any individual who is living in a home that is not their own)
- Foster Care participant (youth who are in, or have aged out of, the foster care system)
- Armed Forces/Active Duty Dependent (child of a parent who is a member of the armed forces and on active duty)
- Students preparing for a Non-Traditional career field (examples: male nurses or female automotive technology students)
To establish eligibility, a prospective or current student must request services by completing the Special Populations Survey during new student orientation.
