“Last year, 82 percent of TCSG graduates were employed in their field of study or a closely related field, and 97 percent were placed when those who are employed in an unrelated field or continue their education are included,” Griffeth said. “Giving students the opportunity to maintain their HOPE grant eligibility should be advantageous for all students. It will be advantageous for Central Georgia Tech in helping to retain more students, and it will be advantageous for the system and state as a whole because students will have skills to be gainfully employed.”
For more information about the HOPE grant, or to apply, contact the CGTC financial aid office at (478) 445-2300 or visit www.centralgatech.edu.
