Are you ready for Career College?

While you may be excited to begin your college career, the first step is to ensure you meet all admissions requirements. Enrolling at an accredited college will require a high school diploma or GED. Contact admissions to learn more about our GED scholarships.

No one wants to pay for the same course twice! Before enrolling, have all previous transcripts evaluated for credit towards your tuition?

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