General

  • Mission:
  • Chattahoochee Technical College, a unit of the Technical College System of Georgia, is a public, multi-campus, two-year college that provides accessible, high quality technical, academic, and adult education and training that promotes the economic growth and development of North Central Georgia. The college successfully prepares individuals for employment and assists them in pursuing their educational, career and personal goals through a variety of learning opportunities that include associate degree, diploma, and certificate programs, as well as non-credit and public service offerings.

  • History:
  • Founded in 1961, Chattahoochee Technical College (CTC) is the largest accredited two-year technical college in the state of Georgia. CTC has come a long way since its beginning as a small college and has expanded significantly just in the past two years as the result of a merger with Appalachian Technical College and North Metro Technical College. Chattahoochee Tech presently serves nearly 13,000 students across six counties and has eight campuses located strategically throughout North Central Georgia.

    The service areas of Appalachian, Chattahoochee, and North Metro Technical Colleges have overlapped for many years, and together the colleges officially serve six counties: Bartow, Cherokee, Cobb, Gilmer, Paulding and Pickens. In merging, there are new opportunities to provide excellent education and training services as part of the Technical College System of Georgia vision and mission of “building a well educated, globally competitive workforce for Georgia.” The main goal is to enhance and expand the level and quality of services and to grow with the region which is expected to rapidly expand over the next few years.

    In March 2003, Chattahoochee Tech hosted a visiting committee for reaffirmation of accreditation by the Commission on Colleges. Continued accreditation was granted in December 2003. In February 2006, North Metro Tech hosted a visiting committee for initial accreditation by the Commission on College. Accreditation was granted in June 2006. In October 2007, Appalachian Tech hosted a visiting committee for candidacy by the Commission on Colleges and was granted candidacy in December 2007.

    The three colleges have a history of collaboration. An example is North Metro and Chattahoochee Tech’s involvement in the Cobb Education Consortium (CEC) that also includes the public school system and the two universities located in Cobb County. The CEC is dedicated to improving the quality of education among its member institutions by working together for the benefit of their students.
