I have a hard time with being a non traditional student who decided to go back to school, that part of my tuition is $85.00 going towards a gym that I'm never in, plus paying for parking every semester and the worse part of that is I do online classes. The instructors might be willing to help you if they have time, you might get an email back but by then it maybe too late. The online MATH yeah you've gotta have a camera on you at all times, a virtual tour of the room your in to make sure your not cheating, seriously???? Or put you in a class that is set with your personal schedule then the day of, they've decided to change the time without telling you. No communication in certain areas, especially Financial Aide!
Not the school I thought it was. Very disappointed....
Georgia Highlands College is amazing. It is small campus, so majors are limited. The teaching staff, however, are wonderful. I know there are some big lecture classes, but i have never taken one here. All my classes have been around 24 students or less, so teachers get a real chance to know you and help you. Every professor I have had calls me by my first name. My advisors have been extremely helpful with getting financial questions taken care off and assisting me in making sure I am taking the right classes and on the best pathway for my graduation. It is a great way to start your college experience. I would recommend it to anyone starting out.
So far, it's been about what I wanted from a community college. Affordable, within a reasonable distance, and great education. The professors have all been great, with only one or two giving me problems, and the course material has been largely understandable. The only thing that bothers me is that some of the courses required for me to graduate are not offered on campus, requiring me to either sign up for e-core or apply elsewhere as a transient student.
