The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) currently does not authorize Southern Crescent Technical College to issue student visas. Applicants who are permanent residents or who qualify under refugee or asylee status are exempt from obtaining M-1 visas to attend college.
The sections below will guide you step-by-step through the application process. We want to make this process as simple and easy as possible for you.
There are many ways to conveniently apply to our college:
To check your online application status, follow the instructions on Online Application Status.
If you have attended college before, you are required to send in all college transcripts. To request your college transcripts:
NOTE: If the transcript is in a language other than English, provide official English translations of all secondary and post-secondary records and evaluations of those records by an approved independent evaluation service. Applicants must pay the costs of having their records translated and/or evaluated. At a minimum, applicants must have the equivalent of a high school diploma for most programs. If an applicant has an associate degree or a baccalaureate degree, a high school transcript is not required. After applicants submit this documentation, the Student Affairs Office will evaluate their application material.
Having your test scores helps us make sure we give you the best chance of success. The Technical College System of Georgia is committed to assisting each student to achieve at their maximum potential.
All students applying for diploma, degree, and certificate programs must be assessed prior to acceptance to a program of study at a Technical College.
We accept the following tests:
Students possessing an Associate’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution shall be exempted from placement requirements.
All scores must be valid based on the program minimum requirements. The student may be required to retest or provide acceptable transfer coursework prior to readmission.
If you are a former Southern Crescent student or attended a regional accredited institution, and you completed a College English or College Algebra course and received a grade of C or better, you are not required to take the ACCUPLACER test.
ACCUPLACER is a suite of tests that determines your knowledge in math, reading and writing as you prepare to enroll in college-level courses. ACCUPLACER is used to identify your strengths and weaknesses in each subject area and to help you improve your skills through interactive online learning tools. The results of the assessment, in conjunction with your goals and interests, are used by academic advisors to place you in the appropriate college courses.
COMPANION are paper-and-pencil format tests for students who choose not use the computer-based test. The paper-and-pencil COMPANION tests have been designed to use the same score scales as the computer-adaptive tests in ACCUPLACER.
