What is the Special Populations Program?

Gwinnett Tech offers support services designed to remove academic, career and economic barriers. Our services are designed to foster success and contribute to the self-sufficiency of students who are members of the special populations group. Services are available for students, based on eligibility, and their self-identification in one or more of the following special population identifications:

  • Single Parents including single pregnant women
  • Displaced Homemakers (worked in home to care for family and dependent on another family member’s income)
  • Students with Disabilities (see Disabilities Services for more information)
  • Students with limited English proficiency (English is not the native language)
  • Students preparing for a non-traditional career field (examples: male nurses or female automotive technology students)
  • Economically Disadvantaged (identified through Pell eligibility)

 

What Services are Available?

  • Assist with classroom accommodations
  • Provide student resource guides and referral information
  • One on one support guidance
  • Academic Coaching
  • Life Skills Workshops
  • Internal campus support
  • Crisis Intervention
  • Community Resource Referrals
