All tuition and fees must be paid prior to attending classes at OTC. Fees are not covered by HOPE.
* The fees for an out-of-state student are the same as they are for an in-state student. However, the tuition is doubled for an out-of-state student. Out-of-state and non-citizen students can apply for a Tuition Waiver if there is a demonstrated financial need.
In order to comply with accreditation requirements for the validation of student identity for all online courses, all students enrolled in online courses at Ogeechee Technical College are required to have a proctored event (a major exam or assignment). Students who live more than 75 miles from the main campus may request approval for an off-site proctor. Students may complete the proctored event at any TCSG college at no cost to the student. A list of TCSG test proctoring sites and contacts may be found by clicking HERE. Students will be responsible for any fees associated with off-site proctors.
Residents of Georgia who are 62 years of age or older who are otherwise qualified may attend Ogeechee Technical College without payment of tuition on a space available basis. This policy applies to regular and institutional credit courses only. It does not apply to continuing education courses, noncredit courses, or seminars. Persons seeking this waiver must meet all other admissions requirements as specified in the OTC Catalog and Student Handbook. Proof of age must be presented at registration.
Adult Education students attending the adult basic education programs shall not be charged tuition nor be required to purchase any books or other materials that are needed for participation in the program. GED testing fees, however, must be covered by the student. The fee, in Georgia, for the GED® test is $40 for each sub-test or $160 for the entire battery of tests. Scholarships may be available to eligible students who are enrolled in a GED® program and meet minimum requirements.
Note: All requests for waivers of tuition and/or fees are to be submitted to the President.
