Albany Technical College Ranks in the Top 400 Best Community Colleges

Albany Technical College (ATC) recently ranked in the top half of the nation’s best community colleges, according to a study by WalletHub. Out of the 12 Georgia colleges considered, ATC is the only college in Georgia south of Macon to make the top 400.

ATC placed seventh out of the 12 Georgia colleges represented, and 337 out of 821, nationally. As a state, Georgia was named the eleventh best state in community college education.

The study analyzed 821 schools from the American Association of Community Colleges (AACC), and each school was given a score out of a possible 100 points. ATC received a score of 47.34.

These points are based on twelve different metrics falling under the three following categories: cost and financing, educational outcomes, and career outcomes. Some factors included tuition, retention, student-loan default rate, and student-faculty ratio.

ATC has emerged a community college leader in South Georgia. Although the Wall Street Journal named Albany the sixth poorest city in America in 2013, ATC is paving the way for higher education in the region and bringing success to its low-income community.
