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!

I love the humble environment. It is a really beautiful school, and the staff is awesome. The programs of study are well-equipped to train anyone who desires to dive right into them. I would love to see a photography program added to the school. Overall, my experience at West Georgia Tech has been excellent. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to get a kick-start into college.
I have had a very good experience at West Georgia Technical College. The teachers are amazing, they are very good at what they do. The classes are well created and the accommodations department works very well with my needs and concerns.
