Chattahoochee Technical College kicked off the 2019 fall semester with 10,357 students enrolled for classes.
“It is always exciting to welcome over 10,000 students back to school each fall,” said Chattahoochee Tech Executive Director of Admissions and Records Missy Cusack, who noted that the college has students from 75 different Georgia counties enrolled this semester. The average age of students at Chattahoochee Tech is now 24 years old, according to Cusack, which reflects a younger age student every year since 2011. “Even Georgia’s youngest citizens are understanding the value of a technical education,” said Cusack.
With campus locations serving six counties, the college’s Marietta Campus has close to 4,000 students this semester, followed by the North Metro Campus in Bartow County with nearly 3,000 students, and the Paulding Campus with just under 1,000 students. Additionally, there are over 700 students registered for classes at the Canton Campus, and over 600 students registered for classes at the Woodstock Campus. Another 593 students have enrolled for classes at the Mountain View Campus in Cobb County, and 570 students are enrolled at the Appalachian Campus in Pickens County.
Online classes also continue to grow in popularity with many students taking at least one online course. Programs available for completion online at Chattahoochee Tech include Accounting, Business Management, Business Technology, Criminal Justice Technology, Logistics and Supply Chain Management, and Marketing Management.
“Chattahoochee Tech provides a high quality, easily accessible college education at a fraction of the cost of other area colleges and universities,” said Cusack. “The college awards certificates, diplomas and associate degrees in more than 50 programs of study through traditional classroom courses as well as online training. We also provide the community with learning opportunities, including customized workforce training, adult literacy and continuing education programs.”
