GPTC's enrollment process was much more organized than most colleges I have applied to. There is another community college near us and The process had me sitting out of college for years months and semesters. Georgia Piedmont Technical College has improved there process tremendously. And once you are in enrolled you are a student with an ID and ready to go to class. After your first major College orientation. Now that I am a GPTC student have joined 3 clubs my first semester, and I actually have completed my first college semester! And as a adult- non- traditional, I feel like I can really finish college after all these years.

As an adult student I will work with my school to offer my advise for all classifications of students in there enrollment and retention process at school.

I am a medical major student, my school is just the beginning for me. The Clinical Laboratory program that I am currently enrolled in is magnificant! I love my continuous work load, it keeps me busy and up to speed. The professors are pesistent, passionate, available and always pushing you to the next level. The program is also unique because, there are many jobs to gain once you complete the program. The doors are open and there are unlimited distances that you can go just by involving yourself in the Clinical Laboratory program, I would recommend the program to anybody.

Now I will give this portion of my survey a middle of the road rating, simply because I am "ole' school" a more traditional learner. Having this type of educational gap is a reall eye opener for the following: Web based, web- enhanced still comes off as online. What ever happened to teaching formulas from each college professor. I felt so hurried along in most if not all my classes my first semester. Oh, I kept up but there wasn't any room for any real Q&A's my instructors are like coaches or proctors, the facilitated our class all but my learning support instructor took little time to lecture. All of our software (our lecture) was our teachers but if you had a question, comment, or concern at that moment you can't ask a question. I personally do not like online learning its to uninvolved. It's best description is its like Facebook for college. I want that to change.
