At West Georgia Technical College, we believe many of our courses and even some entire programs should be offered as an online option. Many courses lend themselves well to be taken online as they may require extensive usage of software applications, computer technology or Internet access. Other courses may also be lecture-based. These type courses can often be taken using an online platform that will provide better flexibility for individuals with busy schedules or with a preference of online learning.
At WGTC we offer several programs that may be taken as a totally online program in the areas of Accounting, Business Management, Business Technology, Cybersecurity, Fire Science Technology, Marketing Management and Medical Coding. These programs are available to students regardless of geographic location as long as they have adequate computer access, traditional software and a reliable Internet connection. In addition, most of our business programs are nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). WGTC participates with many other U.S. states in offering reciprocity online learning agreements for online courses and programs.

Regardless of whether a student takes a class or program traditionally, hybrid or completely online, Admissions and student academic support services are available to assist students in need of admissions, academic advising, online tutoring and career counseling no matter where in the world they are located.
