Since 1962, Georgia Northwestern Technical College has been instrumental in providing quality workforce education to the citizens of Northwest Georgia. The mission of Georgia Northwestern Technical College is to provide accessible, high quality technical education and workforce development opportunities. Serving the nine counties of Catoosa; Chattooga; Dade; Floyd; Gordon; Murray; Polk; Walker; and Whitfield, GNTC has five convenient campus locations in Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker, and Whitfield counties. With programs of study in business, health, industrial, and public service available, students have the opportunity to earn an associate’s degree, diploma, or a certificate from GNTC.
Approximately 16,000 people benefit from GNTC’s credit and noncredit programs each year. With an annual credit enrollment of 8,565 students, GNTC is the largest college in Northwest Georgia and the fourth largest technical college in the state of Georgia. GNTC has an additional enrollment of 7,438 people through adult education, continuing education, business and industry training, and Georgia Quick Start.
Among the programs available at GNTC is the opportunity for high school students to participate in Dual Enrollment. While still in high school, students can take college courses, taught by a GNTC instructor, at any Georgia Northwestern Technical College campus or at their high school. Dual enrolled students receive credits toward their high school graduation and toward a college degree at the same time. In 2013, Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) was recognized as having the largest number of dual enrollment students out of all of the technical colleges in the state of Georgia.
Georgia Northwestern Technical College also has a variety of noncredit options available through the Office of Economic Development including continuing education courses, business and industry training courses, ACT Work Keys® Assessments, and Georgia Quick Start. Through GNTC’s Office of Adult Education, students can enroll in GED classes, assess their skills in various academic areas, learn English as a second language, and take Work Keys® Assessments.
My commitment to you is that the staff and faculty of Georgia Northwestern Technical College will work to see that you receive a quality education and that you are treated as our most valuable customer.
Whether you enroll in a program on our Floyd, Gordon, Polk, Walker, or Whitfield County campuses, our desire is to see that you get what you came for. We take a great deal of pride in the tradition of technical education in Northwest Georgia. We are just as excited about our future. We are honored that you are a part of it.
