2 From the President The Atlanta Technical College community is looking forward to unlimited possibilities in We cut the ribbon on the new Brenda Watts Jones Allied Health and Technology Building in December and welcomed students and faculty from our sister college in Detmold, Germany, Felix Fechenbach Berufskolleg, for a two-week visit. We anticipate the opening of our new library in early spring, and with transition from quarters to semesters (Q2S) and the implementation of the Reading Oasis, we are already quite busy. We invite you to join the excitement! Atlanta Technical College provides opportunities for education and career preparation in more than 100 programs of study in the areas of business and public service technologies, health and public safety technologies, and industrial and transportation technologies. Rigorous academic preparation is complemented by global awareness activities and community service. The work that we do on our campus is influenced by our core values and fortified by our strategic planning initiatives. Washington Monthly magazine has named Atlanta Technical College as one of the top fifty community colleges in the nation for 2010, and the college was among the four finalists for the Governor Sonny Perdue Award for the Technical College of the Year. We celebrate these recognitions knowing that our work is not yet done. As 2011 progresses, we will continue to explore new academic programs, we will strengthen our partnerships with business and industry, and we pledge to continue our efforts to provide extreme hospitality to our internal and external customers. photo by Ron Witherspoon The opportunities are vast and our potential is yet untapped.

S. Department of Education. PELL recipients must be enrolled in an eligible undergraduate program of study and must not have attained a baccalaureate degree or a first professional degree. Normally, all associate degree and diploma programs are eligible for a Pell grant. However, many of the technical certificate of credit (TCC) programs do not meet the qualifications eligibility for a Pell grant. A current listing of the Pell eligible TCCs can be found at pdf. Award amounts vary, based on individual need as determined by federal methodology and quarterly federal credit hours. Apply for the PELL grant online at Students with a developmental admission type do not qualify for federal financial aid (PELL, SEOG, FWS, or LEAP). Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) This federal program is designed to supplement the grant assistance awarded to the neediest PELL grant recipients. Funding for FSEOG is limited and based on the amount of funds allocated to the College each year. Since funds at Atlanta Tech are limited, students who meet the priority deadline date for applying for federal aid have the greatest chance of receiving FSEOG assistance. Students may apply online at Students with a developmental admission type do not qualify for federal financial aid (PELL, SEOG, FWS, or LEAP). Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship Program There are currently two components of the HOPE Scholarship Program available to Atlanta Tech students. The HOPE grant component is available to students enrolled in a certificate or diploma program of study. Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 95-quarter hours of HOPE grant payment. Exception: Students enrolled in a program of study that requires more than 95 hours to complete may receive funding up to a maximum of 130 hours. The maximum paid hours of eligibility for these students is based on the number of hours required for their program of study. The HOPE scholarship component is awarded to HOPE scholars enrolled in an associate degree (AAT or AAS) program of study. HOPE scholars are students who graduate from a Georgia high school with this distinguished honor or students who are grandfathered into the program after attempting a minimum of 45 associate or baccalaureate degree credit hours with a 3.0 or greater cumulative GPA at the required checkpoints. HOPE scholarship applicants must complete an ATC HOPE Scholarship Application. The attempted hours limit is 190-quarter hours. Combined HOPE Grant and Scholarship Limit: In addition to the HOPE grant paid hours limit and the attempted HOPE scholarship paid hours limit, there is a combined limit of 190-quarter hours. If the student reaches the combined limit prior to reaching the grant or scholarship paid hours limit, said student will no longer qualify for grant or scholarship assistance. The HOPE award amount = cost of tuition + approved fees + HOPE book allowance. The approved Atlanta Technical College fees include registration fees, student activity fees, and insurance fees, for a maximum of $42.00 per quarter. The HOPE award does not cover the $35.00 technology fee or the malpractice insurance fees (which are required for certain health related programs of study). Contact the Office of Financial Aid for additional requirements and limitations. Georgia HERO Scholarship The Georgia HERO (Helping Educate Reservists and their Offspring) Scholarship Program was created to provide financial aid to students seeking a postsecondary education who are current members of the Georgia National Guard or the United States Military Reserves (or their children) deployed overseas on active service on or after February 1, 2003 to a location designated as a combat zone. It is also available for spouses if the guard or reservist was killed in the combat zone, died as a result of injuries received in the combat zone, sustained 100 percent disability in the combat zone, or became 100 percent disabled as a result of injuries received in the combat zone.

8 NEWS We are the third fastest growing community college in the nation! The numbers are in, and Community College Weekly has designated Atlanta Technical College as one of the top 10 fastest growing public community colleges in the nation. The college, which had an enrollment increase of 43 percent ranked third in the 2,500-4,999 enrollment category. Atlanta Technical College president Alvetta Peterman Thomas believes that the dramatic increase in enrollment can be attributed to a number of factors. First, the economic downturn has compelled a great number of people to return to college to enhance their skills or make a major career change, said Thomas. Second, many high school graduates have found that community and technical colleges are affordable and viable options for sound career preparation. Thomas went on to explain that many people enroll in Atlanta Technical College after close examination of the quality and scope of the course offerings. We offer programs that prepare students to be competitive in emerging job markets. Many people are surprised to discover that Atlanta Tech offers the only ADA accredited dental lab tech program in the state, or that we offer a comprehensive supply chain and logistics management program. Once they take a fresh look at what the college has to offer, they discover that Atlanta Tech is the right fit for them. Atlanta Technical College hopes to see a continued rise in enrollment by casting a wider net. Later this year, administrators will launch an integrated marketing campaign targeting high school students. The college hopes that these students will take advantage of the dual enrollment programs that will allow them to take college courses and earn credit while completing their high school course work. Atlanta Tech ranked as one of the nation s best Washington Monthly recently released its rankings of America s Best Community Colleges, and Atlanta Technical College has been named one of the best in the country. According to the Washington, D.C.-based magazine, Atlanta Tech is 48th among all U.S. community colleges and the top technical college in Georgia. The rankings were based on two sources: the Community College Survey of Student Engagement and graduation rate statistics, compiled by the US Department of Education. Unlike the typical guidebooks that rank four-year colleges, these findings were entirely based on measures with research-proven links to student success. Atlanta Technical College makes the final four Atlanta Technical College may not be in the NCAA Final Four this upcoming season, but the college was selected as one of four finalists for the First Annual Sonny Perdue Award. The award was created by the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia to recognize excellence in technical education.
