Step By Step

Please see the International Student Admission Guide for a detailed admissions checklist.

What to Expect

  1. Within two business days of Athens Tech's receipt of your application you should receive a verification e-mail confirming that we received your application.
  2. After three weeks of the International Services Office at Athens Technical College not receiving your supporting documents required for admission, we will send an emailed reminder of what documents have not been received by our office.
  3. Once it is determined that the applicant meets our criteria and if we have space available we subsequently send via regular mail and email an Acceptance Letter. The Acceptance Letter is our official notification that the student has been accepted to our school for the specified term. The letter will include an assigned Student ID, your Program Advisor's contact information, and instructions on how to set up your email account, and an I-20 form. The letter will also include a sealed envelope addressed to the U.S. consulate that you should take with you to your visa interview.
