Eighteen Georgia technical college campuses may face closure. Officials with the state Technical College System say, the satellite operations cost too much and serve too few students. A list of shutterings proposed this week includes campuses where full-time enrollment has fallen below 200 students.
Sandersville Technical College and Heart of Georgia Technical College in Dublin officially became Oconee Fall Line Technical College on Friday. The merger is part of a statewide plan to reduce costs in the Technical College System of Georgia. The two campuses will continue to function as usual. No buildings will close, but the administration has been consolidated to cut spending.
