ATC plans new student enrollment center
In a few months, Aiken Technical College students will no longer have to travel back and forth between campus offices in order to complete the enrollment process.
In order to make the enrollment intake process for students more efficient and to improve customer service, ATC has begun renovations to create a new, one-stop enrollment services center on campus.
The center will combine the college’s admissions, financial aid and student advising services into one location, streamlining the intake process for students.
The intent is an effort to improve customer service and increase efficiency in our intake processes, said Bryan Newton, ATC’s associate vice president for marketing and enrollment management.
The new enrollment model will eliminate physical and systematic barriers to enrollment.
“The new enrollment center combines the college’s admissions, financial aid and student advising services into a ‘one-stop shop’ for the student,” Newton said.
The $1.5 million, 6,090-square-foot enrollment services center will be located in the college’s Ashley J. Little Administration Building. The renovations are expected to be completed in the next few months.
“Our objectives for this renovation are to alleviate the stress associated with the intake process, and to remove unnecessary obstacles that exist between our students and their opportunities to receive a quality education,” Newton said.
Solid Structures LLC. of West Columbia will conduct the renovation project.
