The Technical College System of Georgia is committed to serving and educating our students at the highest level of excellence.
The conversion from quarters to semesters is a change that reflects our goal to provide students the best and most relevant training and education, and to prepare them for the workplace. The semester schedule offers many benefits -- additional instructional time, more in-depth coverage of course content, ease of transfer to other institutions, and calendar alignment that better supports dual and joint enrollment opportunities.
The guiding principle of the semester conversion process is that every effort will be made to see that each student will be successfully transitioned with as minimal disruption as possible to their coursework during the changeover.
To support this commitment, each TCSG transitional student will have a personal advising session to guide them through the conversion. At that meeting, each student will receive a semester crosswalk guide and an academic plan for their program under semesters.
