Welcome to the Nest

Diverse group of smiling students

As a new student to Chattahoochee Technical College, we know you have questions and will need some guidance to help begin your collegiate career on our campus. We’re here to help! After being admitted, the next step to complete is New Student Orientation (NSO). To better prepare for your college experience, all of our new students are required to attend our NSO session before enrolling in your courses.

If you have a disability and need assistance in order to obtain this information in an alternative format, please contact the office of Disability Support Services.

Before Orientation

Typical reasons students change their program of study:
–  New career path is desired including transferring to a 4-year institution.
–  Financial Aid does not cover desired program of study
–  Selected the incorrect program of study while completing the application.

It is recommended that all students add an emergency contact to their student account.  Please take a moment to do this using the steps below:

    1. Log into BannerWeb
    2. Click on the “Personal Information” tab
    3. Click on “Update Emergency Contacts” box
    4. Name and Phone Number are mandatory but other voluntary information can be added
  • Make sure you receive the email from CTC Technology with your username and password. It was sent to the personal email account provided on the admissions application. If you are unable to locate the email, you can access your credentials by using CTC Password Reset. Please note: an email will be sent to the personal email account that we have in Banner.
  • Make sure you can locate your student ID (900xxxxxx). It’s located on your acceptance letter.
  • Due to the volume of incoming transcripts, please allow 5-7 business days after you have been accepted to CTC for transfer credits to be applied to your account.


Please read the instructions thoroughly.
