West Georgia Tech is a place where you can work towards getting a certification, degree, or diploma. Whether you intend to stay at this technical college or move on, it equips you with the basics. It has been a good college albeit lax at times.

I applied at the Lagrange campus. Here, I wish there were more willing (and understanding) instructors at times; especially in the case of core classes. However, thankfully the tutoring system that the school provides -- both online and on campus -- has proven to be a lifesaver. Take advantage of it!

Wgtc is a great place to get in core Classes or follow through with a degree or certificate. I really like that they offer a variety of classes and lots of opportunities for online classes for busy schedules. So far I have been here almost 2 years and I have not had any problems with my instructors. I do not care for administration, they aren’t the best at helping and don’t communicate well enough to know what’s even going on . You really have to figure out everything on your own. Overall, it’s not the best college(keeping in mind it is a 2 year college) but it gets you started and helps you get to where you want to be in the future !
It would have been nice to have virtual lectures along with the reading assignments to ensure that the students understand the course material before a quiz or exam. Also, the amount of courses offered online, during registration, needs to be increased.
