A traditional college semester lasts for 16 weeks, but ATA’s courses teach the same amount of material in just 4 weeks! Coming to class regularly is vital to a student’s success, so ensure your schedule is clear and you have reliable transportation.

No college is free, but resources are available to help lower students’ costs. Check out our Paying for College section or contact Financial Aid for more information.

Career services begin from day ensuring you are ready to work and will be available for life, not just for your first job.

Here are some common questons

We believe that prospective students should thoroughly research their colleges of interest prior to making a decision. Additionally, the decision should never feel rushed or feel like a “bad deal.”

All our future graduates are invited to tour the school with a member of our Admissions Department at an initial appointment. If you feel comfortable moving forward and all your questions have been answered, a second appointment will be set up to complete an entry exam and enrollment paperwork.

Accreditation is an evaluation process used by all recognized institutions. This process is conducted by an outside organization of educational experts; for ATA College, the organization is the Council on Occupational Education Council on Occupational Education (COE).

COE statement on accreditation:

Accreditation is a status of recognition that is granted to an institution which complies with the eligibility requirements, standards, procedures, and obligations adopted by the member institutions of the Council. Accreditation does not certify that every facet of an institution is of equal quality, but it does indicate that no part of the institution is so weak that the educational effectiveness of the institution as a whole and its services to students will be undermined.

The Council accredits institutions worldwide.
