One-Stop Admissions Process

The admissions process at Okefenokee Technical College may be completed in one stop of about 3 hours or less.

  1. If you are unsure of what program you would like to enter, meet with the Director of Career Services to complete a career skills inventory and discuss the programs offered at OTC.
  2. Bring an official high school or GED transcript to document high school graduation or GED completion if required by your selected program of study. You may use the Official GED Transcript request form if you earned your GED in the State of Georgia. A copy of the High School diploma may be acceptable in some cases. Transcripts for High School, other Colleges or GED obtained outside of the State of Georgia may be requested by completing the request form and mailing to each institution you have attended previously. Please be aware most institutions will not release transcripts until payment of the processing fee has been received.
  3. Complete the Okefenokee Technical College (OTC) application and pay the nonrefundable application fee.
  4. Submit a copy of a driver’s license, state issued identification card, or at least one secure and verifiable document defined in Georgia Code Section 50-36-2.  The Georgia Code Sections can be found at www.georgia.gov.  The driver’s license and state issued identification card must be issued after January 1, 2008.
  5. Take the placement test (You may be eligible to exempt the admissions assessment if you have successfully completed the program-equivalent math and English courses at a regionally accredited postsecondary school or have acceptable COMPASS, Asset, SAT, or ACT scores. An official transcript indicating the courses completed or test scores is required). A photo ID or prior arrangements for providing an alternate form of identification is required.
