As of 2015, Forsyth Technical Community College offers 27 certificate and associate degrees in Business Administration, Computed Tomography and Magnetic Resonance Imaging Technology, Computer Information Technology, Criminal Justice Technology, Emergency Management, and Global Logistics/Project Management Technology. These degrees are created especially for students with commitments preventing them from attending classes on campus, according to the college's website. Before applying, students can complete an Online Learning Readiness Questionnaire to see if online education is right for them.
New online students need to complete an admissions application, send any applicable transcripts and complete placement testing. Placement testing can be completed either at Forsyth's main campus or at one of its satellite campuses. Afterwards, the college allows students to receive academic advising via an online chat function. Students can then register for classes and purchase textbooks online.
The school does recommend new students apply for federal financial aid as soon as possible, using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. Once accepted, online students can expect to study at least three hours a week per credit, according to the college's website.
Located in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, Forsyth Technical Community College has 68 degree programs, 37 diplomas and 72 certificates, according to its website. From 2013-14, the school served nearly 13,000 students.
