Located in Albany, Dougherty County, Georgia, U.S., Darton College is a two-year unit of the University System of Georgia. The institution was founded as Albany Junior College in 1963 and offered its first classes in 1966. But in 1987 its name was changed into Darton College.
The College offers 73 two-year transfer and career associate degrees. Moreover, it offers distance learning courses through local Channel 19 telecasts, web-based instruction, GSAMS video-conferencing, and at selected regional sites off the main campus. Darton College is a recognized leader in state distance learning initiatives, and core curriculum courses in many programs of study are available through distance learning options.
Thanks to Darton's allied health and nursing programs Southwest Georgia is provided with most of its health professionals - including 70 percent of all the nurses in Albany hospitals and 31 percent of all registered nurses in the hospitals of 38 southwest Georgia counties.
The students are encouraged to participate in an ample array of Georgia Junior College Athletic Association/National Junior College Athletic Association intercollegiate athletics, including men's and women's soccer, golf and swimming, women's softball and basketball, and men's baseball.
Darton College recognizes that education is a life-long process and is committed to providing the community with non-credit educational programs and cultural activities and to the support of community public service efforts. The student body represents an exciting mix based on age, culture, race, and gender that provides every student with opportunities for personal enrichment.
The admissions counselors and financial aid advisers are ready to facilitate student's enrollment, and a faculty adviser will work with students personally to develop their academic plan.
