VA Education / Military Services

We are grateful for your service to our country and for your personal sacrifices! Accordingly, we want to help you to get an education that opens the door to great civilian careers. Military-related students attend our College to achieve their individual potential and develop the skills they need to have a fulfilling and flourishing career. Columbus Technical College has been an integral part of the tri-city community for more than 50 years and the focus of our college is providing quality, accredited, transferable, and affordable education for today’s workforce. Our graduates get jobs in the modern economy. As a Columbus Technical College student, you may earn a certificate, diploma, or a degree in a relatively short period of time. Columbus Technical College accepts credits from recognized accredited schools which helps to expedite completion. There is a program for everyone which includes health sciences, professional and technical services, business, science, nursing, and general studies. Our dedicated staff and faculty look forward to seeing you on our Manchester Expressway campus or at Fort Benning. Several of our programs can be completed in a relatively short time, before a permanent change of station (PCS) move.

Skills and education obtained through the college are transferable to virtually anywhere in the world. The College’s excellence in education has resulted in job placement and continuing postsecondary education rates as high as 100 percent in some programs. Offering the latest in technology, classes are being taught by faculty members with extensive experience in the real world and who focus on both theory and hands-on teaching. Online classes are also available in some programs for students who enjoy learning via the Web.
