Admission to a Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) college is a multi-step process, which consists of the evaluation of prior academic experience and an assessment for postsecondary readiness of eligible applicants.

Admission to specific programs requires that applicants demonstrate potential for success as measured by satisfactory placement test scores and completion of all pre-requisite coursework.
Assessment/Placement test scores will be waived for the 2020-2021 academic year. Applicants who earned a 2.6 cumulative high school GPA will be eligible to enter associate degree programs.

Applicants who earned a 2.0 cumulative high school GPA will be eligible to enter all certificate and diploma programs. The academic success center provides services such as, tutorial labs, and individualized tutorials also help prepare students for course and program success.

Applicants who submit misleading information will be subject to denial of admission or dismissal from the college without a refund. All credentials submitted become and remain the property of Atlanta Technical College and will not be returned to the applicant, duplicated, nor transferred to another institution.

Graduates of non-accredited or non-state approved schools are assessed on a case-by-case basis. Applicants with an incomplete file or application received after the deadline may choose to be processed for special admission status.
