Admissions Requirements


Applicants for admission must be at least 16 years of age. Applicants seeking admission to some Allied Health programs must be at least 17 years of age.


Applicants must meet high school diploma or GED requirements for the program to which they are applying or meet home-school requirements. Certificates of Attendance or special education diplomas are not recognized for admission purposes.

  • High school diplomas must have been awarded by a secondary school that is accredited by regional accrediting associations that are part of the Commission on Colleges (such as the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools), the Georgia Accrediting Commission, the Georgia Association of Christian Schools, the Association of Christian Schools International, the Georgia Private School Accreditation Council, the Accrediting Commission for Independent Study, the Southern Association of Independent Schools, the Florida Council of Independent Schools and the Distance Education Training Council, the Texas Private School Accreditation Commission and the South Carolina Council of Independent Schools, or from a public school regulated by a school system and state department of education.

As part of the admissions process, applicants home-schooled in Georgia must present the following documentation, from requirements found in O.C.G.A. 20-2-690, in lieu of the high school diploma and/or GED requirement. Specifically, an applicant must provide:

  1. A letter from the appropriate local board of education confirming notification by the parent or legal guardian of the intent to home-school and verifying that the parent or legal guardian submitted the required attendance reports on a monthly basis
  2. Annual progress reports or transcripts for the equivalent of the junior and senior years. The final progress report must include the graduation date.

Applicants home-schooled in a state other than Georgia must adhere to the following alternative path for admission:

  • Submit copies of annual progress reports or transcripts for the equivalent of the junior and senior years including the graduation date
  • Submit SAT or ACT scores that meet the TCSG minimum requirements

Placement Testing
