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....
Review Georgia Highlands College
Georgia Highlands College is a great investment and a worthy school. The classes are small and the teachers really care about your education.The teachers and staff are willing to help with nearly every question about the college. People of many ages and different backgrounds attend GHC and there is a present veteran community as well. Overall, I greatly enjoy attending Georgia Highlands and recommend it to anyone who's trying to save some money and still get a good education.
Every experience I have had with GHC has been positive. From the application process, to the millions of phone calls I made to admissions, to the kindness of the teachers at orientation, and to the level of critical thinking and care teachers put into their courses, I am in love. I recommend GHC to everyone I know, and in fact, my sister will be starting there in the fall! I take all my classes online, so I don't know too much about the on-campus experience, but I do know GHC has won awards for being the best value for a two year degree in the state of Georgia.
