Published 1:20 pm Wednesday, August 15, 2018
AMERICUS — On the heels of a successful pre-registration day in which more than 500 students registered for classes at South Georgia Technical College (SGTC), the college announced it will hold its second enrollment and registration day on Aug. 16. The event will be held on both the Americus and Cordele campuses and will feature special events throughout the day. The event will also be tagged as a Move-In Day event for students who are planning to take advantage of the on-campus housing offered on the Americus campus.
Students who are interested in attending classes on the Americus campus will have three opportunities to attend an orientation session during the day. They will be held at 9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. A separate orientation will be held for parents at the same time in Hicks Hall. Following the orientation session, students will be able to meet with their advisor, register for classes and meet with the financial aid team.
Special events throughout the day on the Americus campus will include a live DJ, a free hamburger and hotdog lunch, snacks, games and various booths representing student organizations, departments and local businesses. SGTC employees will also be on hand to help dorm students move into their rooms.
Those who plan to attend classes at the Crisp County Center campus in Cordele will have two opportunities to attend an orientation session: one at 9:30 a.m. and the other at 5 p.m. Students will also have the opportunity to meet with their advisor, register for classes and meet with the financial aid team.
Additionally, to welcome incoming students, the Crisp County Center’s student organizations will have tables set up with information and will be serving popcorn and drinks.
Free t-shirts will be given to each student who registers for classes on either campus during registration day.
Individuals will have the opportunity to take advantage of SGTC’s one-stop admissions process on or before the Aug. 16 registration date. The process allows new students to apply, test if necessary and register for classes in the same day. Fall semester classes will begin on Aug. 20.
