Georgia Highlands College offers a wide variety of degrees and experiences to help students in life. Whether a student plans on transferring or earning an associate's (and now bachelor) degree, this college serves as a great stepping stone to new adventures. There are numerous student organizations and a few honor societies that can better prepare and guide students into being well-round people. It is incredibly affordable and is available to nearly anyone since there are five campus locations as well as distance learning. There is a relatively small student population which helps in providing students with personal connections to professors and each other.

GHC helped me prepare to transfer to a four year college. I was able to earn my degree while getting paid to go to school because it's so cheap. Attending this school helped me save thousands in loans! It's a nice start if you don't mind commuting and you actually learn here. The professors are extremely willing to help, you just have to reach out to them first.
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....
