Using GHC Connect

GHC Connect is Georgia Highlands College’s Account Management System. Think of GHC Connect as a “one stop shop” for all account-related issues you may have. You can access GHC Connect by going to highlands.edu/connect. Click the “Proceed to Login” link after you’ve read the introduction.

Use your network username and password to access this system.

You can use GHC Connect to perform the following account-related actions:

Using the “Security Questions” tab, you can set up account security questions. This is an important feature you should set the first time you login. This will allow you to reset your password if your current password has expired. If you forget your password, you can choose "forgot password" from the login page and follow the instructions to reset your password. This will allow you to manage your account without the need to call the Information Technology Department for assistance.

Using the “Password” tab, you can change your network/email account password. As you are typing the new password, you will notice a strength meter indicating how weak or strong the new password is. Remember, this only changes the password for your network/email account – not for any other account.

Using the “GHC Notify” tab, you can sign up for our Emergency Communications System to be notified of general announcements, severe weather alerts, or emergencies via phone, SMS/text message, and email. Please be aware that standard messaging rates will apply. Georgia Highlands College is NOT responsible for any charges incurred while using this service.

Using the “Wireless” tab, you can find information on how to setup your computer for wireless. The username will be the same as your network/email account username. 

Using the “SCORE” tab, you can view information on how to obtain help with your SCORE account. Because this account is NOT managed by the Information Technology Department, this tab will contain information about who to contact for assistance.

Using the “GeorgiaVIEW Vista” tab, you can obtain help with your Vista account. Unfortunately you can NOT change your Vista account password using GHC Connect at this time. However, the information contained within this section will explain how to do so within Vista, and how to obtain help with Vista-related issues.
