SAVANNAH — It’s early in the summer quarter, but enrollment numbers at Savannah Technical College continue their upward pattern.
In data provided last week from the Technical College System of Georgia, summer enrollment is up by 10.7 percent above last summer, with 3,732 enrolled at Savannah Tech campuses in Savannah, Liberty and Effingham. And the number is likely to continue to rise with the start of public school later this month as dual enrollment students are added to the rolls as well as other classes that begin later in the quarter.
“We’re delighted to see this kind of continuing enrollment growth,” said STC President Kathy S. Love. “It’s an upward trend across the state as more and more, people are appreciating what technical college can offer them and their families.”
Attributing to the increase are the college’s new evening programs in culinary arts and cosmetology.
Both popular programs, many students are finding they can continue to work their day jobs and come to school in the evening to build their skills in new career areas.
“We will be offering more of our programs in the evening,” Love said. It’s one of the ways we can help create more opportunities for students to get the classes they need.”
The college has just begun enrolling for fall quarter that starts Sept. 30.
