Chattahoochee Tech Ranked 8th Among Georgia’s Colleges and Universities
Chattahoochee Technical College is ranked eighth in the state of Georgia by the Atlanta Business Chronicle’s list of the area’s 25 largest colleges and universities. The annual listing is part of the publication’s 2012-2013 Book of Lists, which contains 122 lists of Georgia schools, businesses, healthcare agencies, industries, hospitality, real estate and more.
“We are proud to say that Chattahoochee Technical College has been in the top ten for the past several years,” said Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb. “To be named one of the top colleges and universities in the state is a significant statement that students choose CTC for its quality education, the dedicated faculty and staff and the strong student support programs we strive to provide for our community.”
The ranking includes Chattahoochee Technical College as the largest of the Technical College System of Georgia’s 25 technical colleges around the state. It is one of two 2-year colleges to make the top ten with Georgia Perimeter College ranked as 3rd in the state. The list is compiled based on Fall 2012 enrollment numbers and includes information about tuition, fees, accreditation and degree offerings.
Approximately 11,000 students are served by the college’s eight campuses and online course offerings each semester. Chattahoochee Technical College offers associate degree, diploma and technical certificate of credit programs in a wide variety of fields. The college also offers a wide variety of student activities, competitive events, athletics and support services.
With online and hybrid classes, the college is able to serve more students without having to use as much classroom and laboratory space. Additionally, the college is working with instructors and students to provide flexible scheduling that fits in with the school's mostly nontraditional student base. The approach has resulted in a large segment of students taking at least one online class each semester.
“Our students are primarily working adults with many outside responsibilities,” explained Newcomb. “We at Chattahoochee Technical College are striving to remain an accessible institution of higher education from the admissions process to registration and classes that fit the needs and schedules of individuals. We want to see students achieve their academic and professional goals with us.”
Spring Semester for Chattahoochee Technical College starts Jan. 12.
