Entrance Requirements

Applicants must complete and return all required forms and credentials to the college prior to registration. Students are encouraged to apply and complete their admissions file well in advance of registration. Late applications may be considered only if time permits. Delays in acceptance will occur if application materials are received in several segments and/or if the applicant must be reminded to submit certain documents.

Students applying for admission to Lanier Technical College must be 16 years of age or older. Applicants must be 17 years of age or older for admission into all Allied Health programs. Lanier Technical College does not accept or recognize transcripts indicating a certificate of performance, certificate of attendance, or special education diplomas.

A regular high school diploma or a High School Equivalency transcript such as the GED, HiSet, or TASC is required as a prerequisite for entrance into diploma and degree programs, and for most certificate programs. See specific entrance requirements for individual programs. The President of Lanier Technical College may grant a waiver to the admissions requirement as it relates to possessing a GED or high school diploma for those secondary students who are otherwise eligible to enroll in a program of study that is agreed upon by the secondary school and Lanier Technical College. This may apply to students seeking dual or joint enrollment in high school initiatives such as Move On When Ready with Lanier Technical College.

Applicants must be physically able to attend school. In some programs, a student who has a physical condition that would limit participation in a class/lab should provide a written statement from a doctor indicating the student's ability to perform all class/lab requirements.
