Description

Chattahoochee Technical College (CTC), located in Georgia, is a two-year technical college with campuses around Atlanta.

Academics at this school offer technical certificates and associate’s degrees. CTC offers programs in Business Science, Health Science, Personal and Public Services, and Technical Studies. Each program has several focuses for students to choose from. Students looking to enter their Technical Studies program can choose from a number of concentrations including Electrical Systems Technology, Motorcycle Service, and Air Conditioning Technology.

Admissions requirements for this school vary depending on the program. All students, with the exception of those choosing to take advantage of Chattahoochee’s distance learning programs, are encouraged to meet with an advisor and visit a local campus before completing registration.

Students who are not confident in their computer skills, or feel they are lacking in technical knowledge, are discouraged from taking online courses. Those who are unsure of their ability should take the SmarterMeasure Assessment to see which programs would work best for them.

While CTC offers an active college life through clubs and organizations, it should be noted that the online classes are not typical self-paced classes. All online courses stick to a strict 15-week schedule, which students are expected to keep up with. However, this school does offer childcare for parents who are seeking to further their education but feel that they will be too distracted to take classes from home.

Tuition rates will increase with the number of units a student takes. Students will only be charged for the first 15 units they take each semester, so those who prefer a heavier course load will not have to pay additional tuition after the first 15 units. Tuition varies depending on residency.

In addition to tuition, students are responsible for their registration fee and any applicable program fees.

Financial aid is available to those who qualify through state and Federal grants, scholarships, work-study programs and loans.
