Summer Semester Applications Being Accepted
Ogeechee Technical College is accepting applications for Summer semester 2013. According to Ryan Foley, Vice President for Student Affairs at Ogeechee Tech, Summer semester begins May 20. “Returning students have already been registering for classes, but new students need to submit their applications soon to allow time for approval, financial aid, and any other details to be worked out to be in class on the first day of the new semester,” Foley said.
Summer semester typically has fewer students attending and therefore seems a bit less intimidating for new students, according to Foley. “Summer term is a little less crowded and hectic, so it allows for a somewhat smoother transition into campus life for new students,” stated Foley. “There is still time to get into most of our classes, although many do fill as the new term approaches. Applying and enrolling early is the best way to ensure that a student gets the classes they want.”
Foley pointed out that Ogeechee Tech has a variety of programs from which to choose. “Health related courses are always popular, but those in the areas of natural resources, personal service, and industrial related programs are also in high demand,” he said. A complete list of programs, information on admission and financial aid, and other important details may be found on the College’s website.
“We also find that Summer semester is a great time for students to come to Ogeechee Tech who either have, or are enrolled in, a bachelor’s program who are looking to supplement their education and improve their resume,” Foley pointed out. A number of certificate programs may be completed in one semester. Crime Scene Fundamentals, Criminal Justice Specialist, Prep Cook, Child Development Specialist, and Basic Electrical Technician are just a few of the programs that may be completed in a single semester, according to the Ogeechee Tech Catalog and Student Handbook. “Aside from those looking to enhance their resume or other education, many of these programs are great for someone looking to improve their chances of getting a job, or who just have an interest in a certain discipline,” Foley concluded.
Some important numbers which students may need in order to start the application process include: Admissions–(912) 688-6994, Financial Aid–(912) 486-7402, or the general switchboard, from which you can reach anyone at the College–(912) 681-5500.
