FOR HIGH SCHOOL COUNSELORS

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 – and share – with your students who will be attending a technical college beginning in July 2010 or later.

In fact, beginning as early as July 2010, we’ll begin a year of personal advisement of all current students to inform them about the change and prepare an individualized academic plan for them.
