Enrollment up at Georgia technical colleges, including ATC

May 05, 2010 - (FOX31) Spring quarter enrollment at Georgia’s 28 technical colleges is up by 19 percent over the same time last year. Recession forces people back to school.

Spring enrollment of just over 107,000 students is about 18,500 more than in the previous spring quarter.  Meanwhile at Albany Technical College reports enrollment is up as well.

VP of Academic Affairs Joe Dan Banker says enrollment is up because of lost jobs during the recession.

“As long as we are responsive to the local area and industries and their needs then I think we’ll always have enrollment and we’ll stay up there,” said Banker.

Albany Tech’s credited enrollment increased nearly 1,000 students from last year.
