Georgia Piedmont Technical College Reviews

Classes are mostly flexible with a good amount of them available online to accommodate those that work. The school did have it's ability to accept student loans revoked last year for however long that will last so that has been trying since it's the way I've been able to attend college classes.

Some of the classes feel like they should either have better teachers or have their curriculum reviewed once in a while because certain classes pertaining to my degree didn't teach me anything and didn't use any of the programs we should have been using.

Overall, it's good for getting your core classes done cheaply and moving on to a university to finish out your degree.

I am currently a dual enrollment student, taking college classes at this college while still a high school senior. The experience so far has been a good investment of my time. The course material is organized and easy to follow, given that online teachers don't necessarily teach. The community is very nice and professional, the officials are always very helpful. Its inexpensive and offers a great education for a community college, and is an excellent pathway for transferring to a 4 year college.
I love my college. I'm currently enrolled as a dual enrollment student, which means I'm in high school while taking college classes. GPTC has a great dual enrollment program. Unfortunately I had a bad semester with an irresponsible professor.
