Transcripts

GNPEC has some transcripts but not all.  For those students currently enrolled, the transcripts might not have the most current information.  We expect the institution to provide updated transcripts once the December term has ended and the transcripts are updated.

Students can receive an official copy of the transcript currently on file with GNPEC by completing a transcript request form at www.gnpec.georgia.gov/transcripts.  There will be no charge for six months  Thereafter, the charge is $10 per transcript.

 

Comparable Programs

We are working to provide additional information on comparable programs.

In the meantime, you can visit https://gnpec.georgia.gov/directory-institutions and/or www.tcsg.edu and search by Program Name to learn more about state colleges and other Georgia college offerings.

Transferability of credits: You should never assume that credits will transfer to or from any educational institution.  The determination as to whether to accept credits is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

 

Federal Student Loans and Pell Grants

If you have general questions about federal loans, you should first try to contact your loan servicer.  Additional information on loan forgiveness and refund discharge is available at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/forgiveness-cancellation.

If you still have questions about your Federal Student Loans or Pell Grants, DPSA suggests you contact the Federal Student Aid Ombudsman Group of the U.S. Department of Education.  More information about this group is available at https://studentaid.ed.gov/sa/repay-loans/disputes/prepare.  

If you have private loans, you will need to contact your loan servicer.
