WGTC is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) to award technical certificates of credit, diplomas, with associate degrees being the highest level of award for which the College has been accredited.

Campuses are located in Carrollton, Newnan, Douglasville, and Waco, Georgia, respectively. These campuses were originally part of West Central Technical College (WCTC), based in Waco. However, the name of the Troup campus in LaGrange was retained in the 2009 merger, one of several mergers in the TCSG. Heard and Meriwether counties do not have full campuses but do have locations where classes are held.
