Accredited Georgia Online Degree Options

Affordable Colleges Foundation, an organization dedicated to providing free higher education tools for current and future college students and their families, recently published research on all the Not-For-Profit universities and colleges in Georgia that offer online college programs.  Historically, online programs have only been offered by for-profit institutions.  Today, many of the most established not-for-profit state colleges and national universities have launched programs that provide flexibility and lower tuition prices for students.  This dataset is unique to our site and is even ahead of the curve compared to other government education data sources such as NCES and IPEDS.  A few of the key features on the page:


  - Unique list of accredited not-for-profit institutions offering online programs, sorted by affordability
  - Spotlight interviews provided by many college deans with the institution's philosophy on online learning
  - Direct links to the specific online departments, or e-campus, of each institution

Anyone can access the college guide.

Washington Youth Tour

Carroll EMC annually selects three local high school students to receive an all-expenses-paid, weeklong educational trip to Washington, D.C., as a participant in the Washington Youth Tour.

Program

Carroll EMC will select three teenagers from their service area to join dozens of other students, representing electric cooperatives across Georgia, on the Washington Youth Tour. The tour begins with a banquet for participants and their parents. The students enjoy a day of activities in their home state before flying to Washington, D.C., for an incredible week in our nation’s capital. Once they are in Washington, they will have the opportunity to meet Youth Tour students from all across the nation.

Eligibility

1. The Washington Youth Tour is open to students attending a high school in Carroll, Haralson, Heard, Paulding, Polk, or Troup County or if Carroll EMC serves their primary residence with electricity.

2. The applicant must be 16 years of age by June 8, 2019.

3. Any student who has previously won the Washington Youth Tour is not eligible to enter the contest a second time.

**Please note: Children, grandchildren or any close relative of a Carroll EMC employee, Carroll EMC Director or Carroll EMC Foundation Trustee must apply for the statewide contest sponsored by Georgia EMC.

The Selection of Delegates

The deadline to apply for the Washington Youth Tour is Feb 15, 2019. A panel of judges will review the applications to select our finalists. Students who are chosen as finalists will be invited to an interview March 18 or 19. The final selection of our delegates is determined by the combined scores of the application and interview process.

Applications available in Mrs. Ivester’s office
