This school does not have a tenure system, and so we are unable to call out the number of 'adjuncts' due to all teachers being considered non-tenure track. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on the school. We encourage you to understand this topic more deeply, and how the colleges you are interested in approach faculty hiring. It's your education and your money on the line. Make sure you know what you are getting for it.
Many U.S. colleges utilize enrolled graduate assistants to help instructional faculty, however, as ATA Career Education does not offer graduate degree programs, this practice is not applicable to this college.
