A large number of area college students have found themselves at home during our nation’s COVID-19 pandemic. Wiregrass Georgia Technical College has moved many of the college’s popular summer core classes online for Summer Semester.
Students seeking to continue their college education this summer while at home can look at the list of courses offered online through Wiregrass Tech. The college offers these courses at a tuition rate of $100 per credit hour, with small class sizes with and local instructors.
Most courses through Wiregrass will transfer to other colleges/universities; courses such as ECON 1101 Principles of Economics, ENLG 1101 Composition and Rhetoric, MATH 1111 College Algebra, MUSC 1101 Music Appreciation, and SPCH 1101 Public Speaking. For a complete list of courses offered, please visit the college’s website at https://forms.wiregrass.edu/QuarterSchedule/schedule.asp
Wiregrass will be hosting a second Free Application Week April 27-May 1. During the Free Application Week when you apply online your application fee will be waived. There are two ways to enroll for Summer Semester: Full term Summer Semester that begins May 18, or Summer Express that is just 8 weeks starting June 1.
Admission requirements to enter Wiregrass have been made a little easier in the wake of the nation’s COVID-19 pandemic. The Technical College System of Georgia has provided all TCSG colleges the leeway to admit students for summer semester using a variety of methods that do not include placement testing (use of Accuplacer) or the submission of ACT or SAT scores, as well as the ability to accept unofficial transcripts.
The suspension of the placement exam, ACCUPLACER, still provides Wiregrass the ability to use other methods already in place to allow an applicant to continue the enrollment process. Wiregrass will evaluate program readiness in a number of different ways to ensure student success.
The suspension of the requirements for official high school or high school equivalency transcripts for admission to Wiregrass allows applicants who wish to begin this summer the ability to continue their admission process. In the interim, students may submit unofficial transcripts until the colleges resume normal business operations. The students will then have the ability to submit official documents to the college without affecting their current enrollment.
