Albany Tech transitions to semesters

By Karen Cohilas - bio | email

ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  To get in line with Georgia's K-12 program and the University system, all technical colleges in the state are making the switch from quarters.

Albany Technical College president Dr. Anthony Parker said, "For the business of going to college, it makes it more convenient for both the students and the faculty and the administration, so it will be a good thing for students."

"The whole idea is to make it better for the students in a more seamless contingent from Kindergarten all the way to PhD," said Academic Affairs Vice President, Joe Dan Banker.

The first semester doesn't start until fall of 2011. Students who are on the quarter system are being encouraged to finish as much of their course work now as possible.

If they still have classes once the conversion to semesters begins, advisors will work with students to make sure they graduate on time.
