Wiregrass Tech announces new operating hours


July 29, 2013

In an effort to better serve our students and community, Wiregrass Georgia Technical College will remain open on Friday afternoons until 3:00 p.m. beginning August 19. The College will follow an operational schedule of Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. and until 3:00 p.m. on Fridays.

Expanding the operational hours on Friday will allow more instructional time without overloading the students. It will better align with the K-12 school system schedules and increases the college’s flexibility in offering dual enrollment programs both on the college campuses and in the area high schools. Wiregrass Tech serves public and private high schools in Atkinson, Ben Hill, Berrien, Brooks, Coffee, Cook, Echols, Irwin, Lanier, Lowndes, and Wilcox Counties.

The time change will allow more time for faculty to make industry visits and participate in community organizations aligned with their programs. Wiregrass has campuses in Valdosta, Douglas, Fitzgerald and Cook County. This change to the operational schedule will be implemented on all Wiregrass campuses beginning August 19 at the start of Fall Semester.
