Applied Technology Diplomas (A.T.D.) are occupational training programs that can be offered by a community college and are guaranteed to transfer to an A.S. degree.
Some applied Technology Diploma programs have limited or selective admission requirements. A student is urged to consult with the specific instructional area which oversees a particular diploma for additional details.
A.T.D. programs at the College are generally designed for full-time or part-time study. Every student is encouraged to complete his or her class schedule with the help of an advisor.
To meet graduation requirements, each Applied Technology Diploma student must:
- complete the program requirements as outlined in the program section of the catalog,
- demonstrate competence in reading, math, and language through placement examination. Currently this is the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE),
- maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average or higher in all A.T.D. program courses, and
- meet Florida Gateway College’s residency requirement by completing a minimum of 25 percent of the program in residence at FGC before graduation from FGC.
A student who owes an obligation to the College will not receive a diploma or transcript until the obligation is resolved.
