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....

I love Georgia Highlands, the multiple campuses has allowed me the opportunity to not only travel but broaden my amount of friends. I am also able to participate in any club I would like and I really like to be involved. Georgia Highlands is a college I highly recommend. I made the best decision choosing to go here, I could not be happier. Thank you Georgia Highlands!
I liked Georgia Highlands. I took online courses for my 2-year degree in Liberal Arts (general studies) here. The instructors were all helpful, some more than others. For the most part, I found success at this school taking Web based classes. I am now about to graduate!
