Enrollment up at CGTC campus



The CGTC-MGTC merger became effective July 1. 

Griffeth said a prospectus was delivered to SACS by mid-July. A SACS team is slated to visit the local CGTC campus in November to evaluate the school for initial accreditation as an official merged institution.

“How that relates to our programs here is we’re not allowed to enroll students [into new programs] prior to that occurring,” Griffeth said. “With the new building opening, the merger happening and program development, while the timing is unfortunate, the merger was not a predictable piece when the building was planned or even during the construction of the building. It was pretty much unavoidable once the merger process started.”

Starting in January, new programs will be offered to students at the local campus, including pharmacy technology and clinical laboratory technology. The neuromuscular therapy and health care specialist classes will be offered for the first time at CGTC.

“It’s a typical trend to have lower enrollment in the spring than in the fall semester, but I’m hoping that trend will be bumped next semester at this campus,” Griffeth said. “The associate degree level anatomy and physiology classes we’re running is the first of a two-part sequence, so that will keep new students here. We will also have completely new programs, so I’m anticipating higher enrollment in spring than we did for the fall. New programs would’ve helped maximize enrollment this semester.”
