Oconee Fall Line Technical College is a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). The governing board for the college is the Georgia State Board of Technical and Adult Education.
The State Board of Technical and Adult Education became a statutory body on July 1, 1986, and it has subsequently assumed direct governance of the majority of Georgia technical colleges and associated university technical divisions. The State Board of Technical and Adult Education was established with the responsibility for the governance and management of all the state supported technical and adult colleges. The Board executes its responsibilities in two primary ways:
- By adopting policies to provide general guidelines for governing the system; and
- By appointing a Commissioner, who is given the responsibility and authority for the administration of the system in accordance with the adopted policies, and who is the chief executive officer of the State Technical College System of Georgia.
Oconee Fall Line Technical College is authorized by the State Board of Technical and Adult Education to award associate degrees, diplomas, and technical certificates of credit.
