CTC Experiences Enrollment Climb, Opens New Campus

MARIETTA, GA -- With another quarter underway, preliminary numbers show even more growth for Chattahoochee Technical College, Georgia's largest technical school.

Now with eight campuses, CTC has registered approximately 13,200 students for classes in over 100 certificate, diploma and associate degree programs.

Numbers are hovering just below the record enrollment of 13,470 that the school saw in Fall 2010. The current number is already 14% more than January 2010, when 11,365 students were enrolled in classes.

"The slow economy continues to push the surge in enrollment as new students seek to improve their job outlook," said CTC president Dr. Sanford Chandler. "It is an exciting time to be here and seeing these thousands of students taking steps to reach their goals in terms of education and career development."

The new year has brought big changes to the college with the addition of an eighth campus in Canton.

Located in the Bluffs at Riverstone Parkway, the new 62,500 square foot facility will house four biology classes during Winter 2010 before launching a full schedule of classes in April.

Officials expect 96 students to attend classes at the Canton campus this quarter. Its address is 1645 Bluffs Parkway, 30114.

All of the other campuses have experienced growth compared to the same quarter last year, especially the school's online courses, which have proven to be very popular alternatives. In fact, online classes are the second most popular option for CTC students.
