Many Ogeechee Technical College students are going back to college to finish their degrees and the state of Georgia is hoping more adults will do so. Today, less than 45 percent of our state’s workforce is prepared to meet the demands of Georgia employers, creating a need for an additional 250,000 graduates above and beyond current graduation rates just to meet the demand and remain economically competitive.
Through the “Go Back. Move Ahead http://gobackmoveahead.org/.” campaign, the state now offers more flexible course options, easier ways to transfer earned credits, additional online courses and personal academic advisers to meet the unique needs of adult learners.
Ogeechee Technical College will be hosting a Go Back. Move Ahead. event on Wednesday, May 27, from noon until 6 p.m. to assist students who want to come back and finish their degrees. During the event, OTC will have staff from the Admissions, Registrar and Financial Aid offices available to answer questions and assist in the registration process. The application fee will also be waived during this time. To add to the excitement, Savannah’s radio station 97.3 will be on site to broadcast live from 2 until 4 p.m.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone looking to go back to college to finish what they started,” said Josey Cameron, student navigator. “With a team available from various departments within Student Affairs, students will be able to easily navigate the admission and registration process while also having a clear understanding of financial aid opportunities.”
