Fill Out Application
Students who do not intend to complete a degree, diploma or certificate from Forsyth Technical Community College should apply as “Special Credit/Non-Degree Seeking” students. Forsyth Tech assumes no responsibility for determining a student’s course selection when the credits are to be transferred elsewhere. It is the special credit student’s responsibility to confirm course transferability. It is assumed that advising is done with the visiting student’s home institution.
Find Your Classes
Search offered courses. Note any requirements (“Requisite Courses”) that must be taken in order to enroll in desired course.
Do You Meet Requirements?
Check with your university to confirm that the course you are requesting is equivalent to the course you need.
Acceptance Letter/Submit Your Request Form
The Acceptance Letter from Admissions Office will provide you the link for the Registration Request Form. If the class you need has a pre-requisite, make sure to attach a copy of the transcript showing the final grade for that pre-requisite to the registration request so the advisor can follow up on your request.
Get Your TechID
You must have a TechID account to access your Forsyth Tech email, Techlink, and other online services.
