Athens Tech waives application fee for graduating seniors

Athens, GA — Athens Technical College is waiving its $25 application fee now through the end of June for all graduating high school seniors.

Applicants can use the code “GRAD2023” in the online application at or visit the admissions department in person.

The college’s fall semester begins on August 21, 2023, and registration opens on June 13.

“We want to continue to be a first-choice institution for many graduating high school seniors and help them obtain job skills quickly,” said Lenzy Reid, vice president for student affairs.

The College offers over 190 certificate, diploma and associate degree options. With online and on-campus classes, and multiple locations, students find Athens Technical College a convenient choice for a career-oriented education at an affordable price. For individuals who have not completed their high school diploma or equivalency, staff will also be on hand to discuss different options for earning these credentials.

“There is a strong demand for our graduates, shown by our 100% placement rate last year,” said President Andrea Daniel. “We are very proud that employers in our region continue to have a high demand for our graduates.”

Tuition-free programs are offered in high-demand career areas through the HOPE Career Grant, which now includes courses in criminal justice. In addition to numerous Financial Aid options, dozens of scholarships are offered through the Athens Tech Foundation.

In addition to the high school fee waiver, the college will continue to hold information sessions during its regularly scheduled Tech on Tuesday admissions sessions at all campuses, where applicants can also have the application fee waived.
