(Marietta, Ga. – Aug. 19, 2016)
Working to keep up with the demands of students on the go, Chattahoochee Technical College is pleased to announce the launch of the Technical College System of Georgia’s new mobile app, which gives students an easier way to enroll and interact with their college.
“This new app is a game changer for Chattahoochee Tech students,” CTC Web Administrator Randy Brown said. “Students may now easily access content on their mobile devices in a more efficient manner than going through the website on their phones or tablets.”
Some features of the new app include:
- An add/drop option for students to manage their course load
- Access to grades and email communications with professors
- Easy access to college calendars
- College-specific notifications
- Management of financial aid
- Quick access to campus maps
- Apple Watch compatibility
“Our students, like much of the world, are heavy users of mobile communications technology,” TCSG Chief Information Officer Steven Ferguson said in a press release. “The new app is an important part of our continuing work to implement new technologies that enhance college experiences for our students.”
Created by Ellucian, a global software and services company, the app is available on iOS and Android and can be found in the iTunes or Google Play store. In addition to providing easier access to information, ranging from inclement weather closings to class schedules, projected updates to the app include the ability to pay for one’s classes without having to wait in line.
“With the Ellucian Mobile app, each student has a personalized, digital extension of their college,” Sheryl Lemma, Director of Product Management, Mobile at Ellucian, said in a press release. “Whether they want to see if friends are taking the same course, email a professor, or check their GPA, the possibilities are limitless for what students can do with the swipe of a finger.”
