The admissions policy and procedures of the Georgia Board of Technical and Adult
Education and Lanier Tech assure the citizens of Georgia equal access to the opportunity
to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to secure personally satisfying
and socially productive employment. By design and implementation, the policy and
procedures governing admission to Lanier Tech are nondiscriminatory to any eligible
applicant regardless of age, race, color, national origin, religion, sex, marital
status, academic or economic disadvantage, or disability.
Lanier Tech is committed to an "open door" admissions policy. This policy means
that any qualified applicant able to benefit from our curriculum will be served
by the institution on a first-applied, first-qualified basis. Some programs may
use a competitive admission process. Entrance requirements are flexible enough to
allow a student opportunity for admission into a specific program. This can be accomplished
when the student demonstrates aptitude and ability for a program as determined by
satisfactory academic performance, placement tests, and other appropriate evaluations,
when deemed necessary, to determine general fitness for admission.
Lanier Tech requires that a minimum of 25% of the course work of a particular program
of study be completed at the institution granting the degree, diploma or certificate.
When a student attends two or more state technical colleges, the degree, diploma
or certificate will be awarded by the College within which the larger number of
hours have been accumulated.
