Special Populations and Disability Services Contacts
The Technical College System of Georgia’s Special Populations Program is available to assist all students with removing and/or overcoming academic, career, and economic barriers. The Special Population Program ensures equal access to recruitment, enrollment, job placement activities, and the full range of technical education programs and activities.
Each of TCSG’s 22 technical colleges provide support services to special population students in an effort to alleviate barriers that interfere with successful completion of courses and employment.
Services are available for students based on eligibility, and their self-identification in one or more of the following special population identifications:

- Are you a student with other barriers to educational achievement, including individuals with limited English proficiency?
- Are you a homeless individual?
