Middle Georgia Technical College is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and provides education services for a four-county service area in middle Georgia. The school's service area includes Houston, Peach, Pulaski, and Dooly counties. MGTC is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award Associate Degrees, Diplomas, and Technical Certificates of Credit. Many of the school's individual technical programs are also accredited by their respective accreditation organizations.
On September 26, 2012, the State Board of the TCSG voted to merge Middle Georgia Technical College with the Macon-based Central Georgia Technical College in order to cut costs. The new college, the name of which is yet to be decided, will cover 11 counties in the Central Georgia region with multiple campuses (CGTC services students in Baldwin, Bibb, Crawford, Jones, Monroe, Putnam, and Twiggs counties), a region larger than the U.S. state of Delaware. Classes under the new college will commence after July 1, 2013.
