Ogeechee Tech set to
begin Summer Quarter

Ogeechee Technical College begins Summer quarter 2010 on Tuesday, July 6, according to OTC President, Dr. Dawn Cartee.  “We anticipate a solid increase in the number of students who will attend our College this Summer, based on the number already enrolled and the trend that has been set over the past several quarters,” stated Cartee.  Ogeechee Tech has experienced record enrollment for each academic quarter of the past year.

“A challenging economy tends to send people back to school, and part of Ogeechee Tech’s increase can be attributed to that fact, but our ever expanding program offerings, affordable tuition, and accommodating

schedules, both on campus and online, have also created the perfect storm for increased enrollment,” stated OTC’s vice president for Student Affairs, Ryan Foley.  Foley’s responsibilities at the College include overseeing the Admissions and Financial Aid efforts.  “Our Admissions and Financial Aid offices have been slammed this week as many students try to finish up last minute details in order to be ready to begin class on July 6,” stated Foley.


While Summer quarter typically sees fewer students attending than other quarters, Ogeechee Tech’s year-round schedule keeps a solid number of students in class during the summer.  “We are seeing numbers for Summer that we were not even hitting for Fall quarter several years ago.  The sustained increase has been a huge help to us in having tuition funds available to offset State budget cuts that we may have experienced,” stated Cartee.

Even at this late date students may still be able to enroll for Summer quarter, according to Foley.  “We encourage prospective students to come out and at least see if they are eligible to start classes Summer quarter.  If they aren’t, they will at least have a jump on Fall quarter,” concluded Foley.
