VALDOSTA— Wiregrass Tech is bringing back the popular Free Application Week for Spring Semester enrollment. Free Application Week will be held on each campus November 4 – 8, during the hours of 7:30 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Thursday, and 7:30 am to 3:00 pm on Friday. Any new student who applies in person during the week of November 4 will have their application fee waived. The Application Week will allow those individuals to enroll for Wiregrass’ Spring Semester. Classes begin January 8, 2020.
Wiregrass continues to work toward seamless educational pathways that enhance a student’s chosen career pathway. The college recently partnered with two state universities to provide an easy transition from earning an associate degree to completing a bachelor’s degree. Students who earn their Associates in Science in General Studies can transfer all their course credits to Fort Valley State University to go toward their Bachelor’s Degree. The second articulation agreement allows students who have earned an Associate’s Degree in Nursing or other Health Services to transfer all course credits to Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Long-Term Care Management that is offered online. The Associate of Science in General Studies is a new program that is offered on the Valdosta, Ben Hill-Irwin, and Coffee Campuses starting this Spring 2020.
Wiregrass now has 77 programs that qualify for the HOPE Career Grant. Students enrolled in these programs could qualify for additional monies to help pay for college.
