The Technical College System of Georgia will adopt semester scheduling in Fall 2011, changing from its current quarter system. It’s a change we believe offers real benefits to our students – from providing more instructional time to improving the ease of transferring credits.

We’re committed to making the transition a smooth one by providing all the information you need to know. From July 2010 to July 2011, we’ll be working individually with our students as well as with local employers, business partners, internships hosts and clinical sites.

The Frequently Asked Questions below provide general information for you. Of course, your contact at your local technical college is always available to you as well.

Thank you for your interest!

Will the change to semesters delay a potential employee’s entry to the workforce? Will workforce training take longer?

How will this affect clinicals and internships?
