Move to Online Instruction for All WGTC Students

WGTC Moves to Online Instruction for All Students
Posted on 03/20/2020

A Message From West Georgia Technical College:

What are we doing for dual enrolled students currently taking classes with WGTC this semester?
  Our ultimate goal is to have students complete their classes this semester. As a college, we are looking at every option available to make this happen. 

Beginning March 23rd, all classes are moving to an online format for the remainder of the semester.

All online instruction will be through Blackboard. All dual enrolled students will use their existing Blackboard username and password. If you do not know your username or need your password reset, contact us.

Students are being informed through their WGTC student email, our social media channels, and our website about the move to online instruction.

Of course some classes are better suited for online instruction than others. For classes requiring lab or clinical hours such as welding, automotive, nurse aide, etc. an individualized plan for each course is being developed. Information for completing hands-on lab and clinical work will be communicated via Blackboard to the student from their instructor.

We understand we have many seniors taking classes required to graduate from high school; again, our ultimate goal is to have all students complete their courses this semester.

Our faculty understand they will have to be flexible with their students in terms of completing work online and due dates. I wish I could give you all more definitive plans, but please know with the ever-changing information we are getting from the state and unclear dates on when our campus can open to students and the public, it is difficult to communicate exact plans.

 What about upcoming summer and fall term registration? As of now, all of our effort is going into allowing our students to finish spring semester. With all of our high schools being closed and so many factors to consider, we do not have a definitive plan about registration for summer and fall. 

If you have questions, please contact your high school coordinator or our WGTC Dual Enrollment Office.
