ATC Success Terms, 7 plus 7 semesters.

Albany, Georgia – Albany Technical College, a Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) postsecondary institution, is making a bold move to ensure success for its students. Starting in the fall of 2019, the current semester system will be modified to two seven-week academic terms that have been labeled “Success Terms” or “7 + 7 Semesters.”  This innovative approach to managing the semester system is changing across the nation and now it is taking hold in Georgia as well.  Albany Tech will be the first TCSG institution to switch over to this approach, which creates six times during an academic year when students can start classes, rather than the three entry points available in a traditional semester format.
