Atlanta Technical College believes that opportunities in technical education must include general and technical literacy, academic skills and knowledge, technical skills, and the attitudes needed to enjoy life. To obtain employment, individuals must be competitive in today’s job market, and they must possess the skills that will earn them promotions throughout their careers.  

Realizing that barriers to higher education are as numerous and as diverse as the nearly 5,000 students who comprise our student body, Atlanta Technical College provides a network of academic, personal, and career services to help students overcome the obstacles they face as they pursue an education.

Atlanta Technical College does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, marital status, or disability. Individuals should be provided programs and services that will enable them to develop and improve their academic skills, technical competence, and work attitudes. These attributes are necessary for job acquisition, retention, and advancement in a career that is personally satisfying, socially useful, and economically beneficial.

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Program

Atlanta Technical College (ATC) is an eligible provider for the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program with the state of Georgia. The WIOA program at ATC provides additional funding to economically disadvantaged adults, at-risk youth, and dislocated workers seeking training to increase or enhance skill levels to gain employment.

WIOA funds are coordinated with Pell and HOPE. These funds can assist students with paying tuition, books, and required fees. WIOA can also purchase other required materials such as tools, uniforms, etc. to complete an approved training program.

WIOA eligibility is based on income and each WIOA office will make that determination. Dislocated worker status is not income-based. However, this applicant must provide documentation to prove he/she has been laid off due to lack of work or reduction in the workforce.

Please note that persons seeking WIOA funding must also apply for admission to the college and are required to apply for Pell and HOPE.
