Double Majors

Lanier Tech does not allow a student to enroll in two different programs at the same time. A student must complete all requirements for one program before applying and being accepted into another program.

Practical Nursing Transfer Students

Applicants to Lanier Tech who have been previously enrolled at a postsecondary institution and desire entrance into the Practical Nursing program must meet all admissions requirements of transfer students. In addition, these applicants must submit a letter of reference from their instructor at the previous institution and adhere to the competitive admission process used by the Practical Nursing program at Lanier Tech. Applicants will then be admitted on a space available basis within the appropriate course sequence.

Change of Program

Students desiring to change programs must complete the appropriate forms and meet all the admissions standards for their new program of study. If the program to which the student is attempting to transfer has a waiting list, the student will be placed on the list in accordance with the date of application for transfer. The student will be notified by the Director of Admissions of his/her admission status into the new program. Change of program forms should be submitted prior to the posted semester application deadline to ensure timely processing.

Disadvantaged & Disabled Students

Within a framework of personal guidance and evaluation, special services are provided for the disadvantaged and/or disabled student, and students with limited English proficiency. These services include aiding students in setting realistic goals, making reasonable accommodations, providing job orientation and placement, providing assistance in determining the degree and nature of the disability and/or disadvantage, and suggesting community service agencies for additional assistance. For further information, contact the Coordinator of Special Services/ADA in the Student Affairs Office on the Main Campus.


A student who leaves the College in good standing may apply for readmission as early as the next academic semester. This should be done through the Admission Office. Students who have been dismissed because of unsatisfactory academic progress may be readmitted after one semester of absence from the School. A student suspended for disciplinary reasons may be considered for readmission at the end of the suspension by making an appeal through the Vice President for Student Affairs' Office. Readmission to a program will be granted on a space-available basis within the appropriate course sequence. A break in enrollment in excess of two semesters will require students to complete the curriculum in place at the time of re-enrollment.

Readmission to the Nursing Program

Students dropped from the Practical Nursing program for attendance (i.e., maternity, health related, family illness, personal difficulties), academic reasons or students who have made less than a "C" in a nursing course will be allowed to repeat the course(s) one time only. Readmission to the program will be granted on a space-available basis within the appropriate course sequence and will be based on the date the student applied for readmission.
