    Getting Ready for the GED Test

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Did you know that you can still gain admittance to an adult education or career training program without a high school diploma? By passing the General Education Development (GED) test, you’re demonstrating to colleges and universities that you have what it takes to excel in an academic environment. There are five GED tests covering social studies, mathematics, science, writing, and reading. Begin preparing for these tests as soon as possible to increase the likelihood of earning a top grade and gaining admittance to your preferred adult education program.

    Take a Practice Test

    Although it may seem like extra work, it’s a good idea to take a practice GED test before you begin a study program. Once you score your practice test, you’ll have a better understanding of your academic strengths and the areas that could use a little more work. When taking the test, be sure to stick to the time limits. Afterward, review the answers carefully to assure they are correct.

    Establish a Study Plan

    Establishing a study plan for the GED test will help improve your time management skills and will ensure that you have enough time to fully prepare. Plus, your new study skills will serve you well during your career training courses. It’s best to set aside some time for studying each day, as this allows your brain to retain information better than if you were to study for several hours only on the weekends. When you begin each study session, briefly review the material you previously worked on before starting work on new information. Use a variety of study techniques that you find most helpful, such as creating flashcards and taking additional practice tests.

    By enrolling in an adult education program at Chattahoochee Technical College, you’re gaining access to a wealth of actionable, relevant information that can make you an ideal candidate in today’s competitive job market. Our Georgia-based College requires a GED or high school diploma for admission to any credit program.

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Imagine traveling the equivalent of twice the earth’s circumference at breakneck speed, stopping to load and unload precious cargo along the way. Sound exhausting? Now imagine making that same journey every two minutes! For a red blood cell, this is routine. 

    Join Chattahoochee Technical College as we embark upon an incredible journey through the circulatory system. Children from 2 to 102 will enjoy hands-on activities, exploring the heart, lungs, and other organs to help better understand what lurks beneath the skin.

    Titled Science for EveryBODY: Circulating Knowledge, the mini expo, to be held Friday, March 27, from 8:30 AM to 4:30 PM in building 400 on the North Metro Campus, will be presented by the College’s biology department and will include the assistance of CTC students. Featuring anatomical models of circulatory structures and associated organs, participants will build functional models to demonstrate cardiovascular and respiratory function, touch real, preserved specimens, and more.

    On the following day, Saturday, March 28, Science for EveryBODY will be one of the activities participating in the Atlanta Science Festival’s Exploration Expo, an interactive day of demos, hands-on activities, and stage shows at Centennial Olympic Park. While Science for EveryBODY and the other activities at the ASF are geared toward 8-13 year olds, the events promise an entertaining experience for all ages.

    The Exploration Expo is the culmination of the ASF, a weeklong celebration of local science and technology held March 20-28. Scientists and educators from local colleges, museums and companies will uncover mysteries and explain discoveries in hands-on activities, facility tours, stimulating presentations, and riveting performances for adults and children of all ages. More than 100 events will occur across the metro area

    Tips for Returning and Non-Traditional Students

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Whether it is your first time in a classroom after years of being in the workforce, or you’ve decided to come back to college to complete your degree, non-traditional students face similar challenges to those fresh out of high school. At Chattahoochee Technical College, we serve all of our students by providing a variety of resources to help make reaching one’s educational goals a success.

    First Steps

    After completing your Application for Admissions, you’ll need to fill out a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Although the deadline is still months away, submitting the form early can allow for more processing time by the financial aid office. The 2015-2016 FAFSA becomes effective for fall semester 2015. While the FAFSA takes a few minutes to fill out, having your most recent tax return nearby will save time and frustration.

    While it is not mandatory, CTC recommends all first-time students and students returning from an extended break meet with an academic advisor. Before registering for classes, many returning students and most first-time students will be required to take the COMPASS Assessment test to determine which math and English courses they are able to take. For more information on getting started on the right foot, take a look at Swoop’s Student Success Guide

    Academic Goals and Campus Involvement

    Once the semester begins, engage in activities to help reach your educational goals, such as participating in group study sessions or visiting one of CTC’s Academic Success Centers. Students can find a myriad of resources to help them stay on track and maintain a proper balance for their academic pursuits by visiting ChattahoocheeTech.edu/services.

    Becoming involved with athletic teams and clubs on campus is a great way to feel more connected to other students and to the school itself. College and on-campus activities are enrichment opportunities that facilitate personal growth and leadership skills. Look for activities that suit your interests and further your career goals.

    If you’re interested in starting a new career or going back to finishing your degree, Chattahoochee Tech can help. For more information, visit ChattahoocheeTech.edu or call 678-384-4958.
