Distance Education

Wiregrass Georgia Technical Connection (WGTC) offers distance education courses so that students can begin or continue their education even with busy lifestyles. Distance education courses allow students to arrange their class attendance around their own schedules. As long as due dates are met, students may work at any time and from any place that is convenient to them.

Wiregrass Georgia Technical College offers a wide array of courses which utilize Internet resources and are classified into the following three categories: Online, Hybrid, and Web-Enhanced.

  • Online - An online course is taught using the Internet with the bulk of the course content, activities, and interactions occurring online.  Online courses may require on-campus class attendance or proctored exams.
  • Hybrid – A hybrid course is taught partially through the Internet and partially in a traditional, face-to-face setting.  In a hybrid course, the bulk of the course content and activities occur in a traditional, face-to-face setting.
  • Web-Enhanced – A web-enhanced course is taught in a traditional classroom but uses the Internet as an important component of the course.  The web-based component of the course supports classroom instruction and may require students to use the Internet in order to interact with one another and the instructor, to review content, do research, complete and/or submit assignments, or take tests.

As a group, these courses are referred to as distance education courses.

Wiregrass is a member of the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) which authorizes colleges to enroll students in states other than Georgia in online courses. Wiregrass can only enroll students in online programs from states that are also members of NC-SARA. Please check the website, National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements, to see if your state is a member of NC-SARA.

Programs offered online have admission, retention, and credential requirements that are qualitatively consistent with those in effect for on-campus programs. To apply for admission to Wiregrass Georgia Technical College, click here.
