Transfer Student Admission
Athens Technical College will honor any current academic sanctions imposed on applicants by the colleges they last attended. The Admissions Office staff classifies transferring applicants as being in good academic standing if their last college did not impose any academic sanctions. The Admissions Office staff classifies transferring applicants as being on probation if their last college placed them on probation, or if their cumulative grade point average (GPA) is below a 2.0. Students on academic dismissal at their previous college must meet the requirements for re-entry to that college before they are eligible for admission to Athens Technical College. Once those requirements are met, the Admissions Office staff will admit these applicants on a probationary basis.
Applicants admitted on a probationary basis must attain a minimum 2.0 grade point average during their first semester of enrollment at Athens Technical College in order to remove themselves from probation. Otherwise, they will be dismissed from the college (see Academic Probation and Academic Dismissal). Students admitted to the college on a probationary basis after being academically dismissed from their previous college must complete FSSE 1000—First Semester Seminar during their first semester of enrollment if they have not completed a similar course previously.
