ALBANY, GAA special Albany Technical College (ATC) Live YouTube event will take place Thursday, April 15 at 10:00 a.m. honoring the Dual Enrollment graduates from Albany Technical College. 64 students at ATC attending as Dual Enrolled high school students will graduate with either an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree, a diploma, or Technical Certificate of Credit. COVID-19 has changed how we can recognize these students in person. We want to acknowledge their remarkable achievements and highlight their accomplishments. Albany Technical College is very proud of the accomplishments of the Dual Enrolled students and looks forward to hearing of their great success. 

With the Georgia Dual Enrollment program, all Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) colleges are seeing success, especially those who move on to four-year universities to obtain higher levels of degrees. The goal is to highlight these students each academic year.

"The Georgia Dual Enrollment program is one of the best programs available for high school students, and we encourage local area students, to talk to their parents, and to take advantage of this opportunity. Albany Technical College offers a chance to accelerate high school students into careers right here locally," said Dr. Anthony O. Parker, President of Albany Technical College.
