The administration, faculty, Board, and Foundation of Albany Technical College take pride in being known by the company that we keep.  We serve and hopefully maintain positive relationships with employers in Dougherty and six other nearby counties. Our responsibility continues to focus on providing workforce education at the collegiate / postsecondary level.  Under the auspices of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) and congruent with its workforce development mission, we offer a myriad of academic programs with certifications at the associate degree, one-year diploma, and technical certificates of credit levels.  Workforce training through adult education and economic development programming is also an integral service within Albany Technical College’s (ATC) portfolio.

We are proud of our relationship that we have with other Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) Institutions.  We offer course credits through a common numbering systems with program standards for each diploma or degree.   Other notable affiliations Albany Technical College enjoys with innovative two-year college groups include, the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), the League of Innovation and COMBASE. 

Albany Technical College is thrilled to be connected with some of the finest public and private universities in and around Georgia.   Our associate degree graduates have the opportunity to earn leadership baccalaureate degrees at twelve colleges and universities.  More importantly, most of those pathways to bachelor degrees are online.

The company we keep demonstrates our commitment to provide technically educated artisans for Southwest Georgia’s employers.  We take seriously our obligation to serve as a conduit for individuals in our geographic region to obtain economic affluence.
