Welcome to Albany Technical College, home of the Mighty Titans! I am delighted that you decided to visit southwest Georgia’s premier technical college! Since 1961, ATC has been providing a world-class, affordable, and accessible technical education to the citizens of southwest Georgia. Albany Technical College is an excellent technical college to begin or continue your academic journey.
Whether you are a prospective student wondering what ATC has to offer, pursuing a career in a professional-technical field, taking pre-college classes, seeking a high school equivalency and adult education opportunities, an established professional looking to make a career change or upgrade skills, or seeking to participate in training or non-credit courses for personal and professional enrichment, we can help you achieve your goals.
As a technical college, we acknowledge the demands of being a student and having a work-life balance. Therefore, we employ various instructional delivery and course scheduling methods that will accommodate the learning preference of all students. At ATC, course offerings are available in traditional in-person (day and evening), 100% online, hybrid, and weekend formats. These options give students the flexibility of scheduling their work, social and school lives in a way that allows them to engage in educational coursework while managing other family-oriented responsibilities.
Employers within our region are regularly seeking skilled workers to replace an aging workforce and/or expand their existing workforce. With the help of dedicated and expert faculty and our Career Service department, students and graduates of Albany Technical College will be aligned and connected with potential employers for lucrative job opportunities. In addition, graduates seeking to advance their education beyond a 2-year degree will have the opportunity to experience a seamless transition to various 4-year colleges or universities that have engaged in formal agreements with ATC.
We believe that you will find your student experience here at Albany Tech as a seamless process for admissions, financial aid and registration, available and reliable student support services, superb customer service, quality teaching and student advisement, state-of-the-arts labs, classrooms, training equipment, and facilities, and a collegiate environment that is clean, safe, and filled with excitement and fun activities for students.
Coming to college is an important step in your career progression and we hope that you will acquire everything you need to help you make a well-informed decision about your next steps. Take some time to explore the College through the website and then, please do come and see us at our main campus where you can see for yourself and meet with our dedicated teams on hand to make sure that you get the support, advice and guidance you need to help you progress to employment, further study at college or 4-year university, or onwards to start your own business.
Whatever your ambitions, we’re here to help them become a reality.
I look forward to seeing you on campus.
