Based on the preliminary data released from the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG), Georgia Piedmont Technical College (GPTC) is listed with the highest summer semester increase in student enrollment among the 25 technical colleges statewide.
The college has a total enrollment increase of 17 percent. The number of students taking 12 credit hours or higher increased even greater to 29 percent against the system’s average, which is 7 percent.
Under the leadership and direction of GPTC’s new president, Dr. Jabari Simama, the college has refocused itself on new processes and programs to become a Best-In-Class higher education institution.
“We are excited about the continued growth of our college,” said Simama. “There is a great need in our community for education, and we are delighted to help more students obtain higher-paying jobs and the American dream.”
