Due to classes running continuously, we meet prospective students by appointment only during our hours of 9:00am - 5:00pm during the week. To make an appointment, please contact our Admissions Coordinator, at (470) 210-8838 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes. Although the entrance requirements for the Georgia School of Phlebotomy are that a student be 18 years of age (or older) and hold a high school diploma or equivalent, we understand that there are complications for obtaining diplomas and other documentation, such as transcripts, that accurately reflect a graduated status. Our office will work with you to obtain appropriate documentation (such as a transcript showing you were on track to graduate in 2020, or written verification of status from your school) upon enrollment. As long as students who were scheduled to graduate in 2020 were in good standing for graduation prior to the pandemic and participated in all high school mandated activities (such as online learning or submission of required projects), they are able to enroll without typical documentation.
No, this will not affect your ability to enroll into the Georgia School of Phlebotomy. We do not require a specific GPA for admission, so ungraded work in your final semester(s) of high school will not affect your ability to enroll.
Accepting students is left at the discretion of the individual externship facilities, but the Georgia School of Phlebotomy will work with students to find an appropriate and timely placement. If you were previously enrolled before the pandemic, you may be reassigned to another externship site, depending on availability.
Because of the skills-based nature of the courses offered by the Georgia School of Phlebotomy, online classes are not appropriate or a good use of our students’ time. Therefore, all classes are held in-person with appropriate social distancing precautions in place.
Social distancing precautions are in place during whatever period is deemed appropriate by state and local authorities. These include, but are not limited to: • Limiting the number of students allowed in confined spaces, such as the office and in skills labs • Increased space between desks or other student seating • In-person office assistance by appointment only • Limiting the number of office personnel and faculty in the building • A mandatory mask policy (outlined below) • Increased hand-sanitizing stations throughout campus • Mandatory COVID-19 risk pre-screening questions for students prior to attendance of class • Infrared temperature scans • Relaxed attendance documentation policies to allow potentially infected students to request incomplete status (enrolling at a later date) without medical documentation • No-contact payment protocols • Limiting the number of persons in the building, based on square footage and other factors.
We will be working with students to move registrations to later class dates throughout 2020 if you are concerned about attending classes for COVID-19 related reasons. Please review the schedule pages for upcoming class dates that you would be comfortable attending and contact the office to request that your registration fee be moved.
Students are required to wear a cloth mask while in public areas of the school and in close-proximity situations, such as the skills laboratory, classroom and office settings. You are required to bring your own mask and it must sit tightly across your face to cover your nose and mouth. It must be washed between uses. Bandanas and scarves may not be used in place of a mask. Disposable masks may be used only if they are in good condition and free of damage.
Do not attend class or come to campus. Contact the office via email or phone and you will be advised on your options for continuing your enrollment at a later date after a required self-quarantine period. You will not be penalized for absences accrued due to suspected or possible infection through July 1, 2020, and no documentation will be required. After July 1, 2020, absences for illness or suspected/possible infection will be allowed without penalty but will require appropriate documentation from a healthcare practitioner.
Please check your email for specific instructions related to your registration. If you do not see an email, check your spam folder and then contact the office for further assistance, or visit to request a refund or choose a new class start date. Refunds are issued as soon as possible, but no later than 30 days after your request. Students scheduled to return to class or begin a new enrollment MUST complete the mandatory pre-enrollment COVID-19 risk questionnaire. These responses are private and will only be accessible to Georgia School of Phlebotomy administrators. The questionnaire must be completed prior to attending any in-person activities on campus, including office appointments or new class enrollments.
If you are in an externship program, and depending on where your clinical assignment is located, you may be required to complete a background check, health physical, current TB test, or other requirements. All fees associated are extra costs to the student. Most of our clinical placements only require a TB test that can be done at any local clinic. The school estimates that additional costs to externship students will be between $20-$100, depending on which site you are assigned to and what documentation you already possess. Each student is required to bring a copy of their High School Diploma, GED or High School transcript to the first day of class. If you are unable to bring this, there is an option to have the school request your transcripts which is a cost of $20.
