Admissions Steps

Step 1: Apply online and submit admissions documents.

  • Apply Now!
  • Pay $10 application fee
  • Immunization records – All GTC students born after 1956 must provide proof of immunization against measles, mumps, rubella, tetanus-diphtheria and Meningococcal Disease (in compliance with Louisiana state law) to complete the admissions process. Students may submit proof of immunization OR sign the online waiver.
  • Proof of Selective Service Registration (if applicable) – Proof of registration with the military Selective Service is required for male applicants between the ages of 18 and 25 (in compliance with Louisiana state law) to complete the admissions process.
  • Submit High school transcript or equivalency - If you have earned a high school diploma or completed an equivalency exam, submit your official high school transcript or copy of your diploma. If you completed an equivalency exam, submit a copy of your equivalency diploma or scores. Some programs at GTC require proof of high school graduation or equivalency for admission to the program.
  • Submit Official College Transcript (if applicable) - If you have earned college credit at another college or university, request an official transcript be sent to Goodwill Technical College. Official transcripts are used to determine appropriate course placements, transfer in coursework towards graduation requirements, and to satisfy course pre-requisites. Though it is not required for full admission to the college, failure to submit transcripts from previous institutions may cause the student to miss an opportunity to receive transfer credit.

Step 2: Schedule and take admissions test (if applicable). 

GTC uses the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE) for the admissions test. 

Do I need to take the TABE test?

  • Students who have a college degree or have successfully completed a minimum of 12 credit hours at an accredited college or university are exempt from taking the TABE test and may proceed to the next step.
  • Students who have a high school diploma or equivalency are exempt from taking the TABE test and may proceed to the next step.
  • Students who do not have a high school diploma or equivalency or received a high school certificate, must take the TABE test. 
  • Schedule the TABE test. Once the test is complete, proceed to the next step.
