Admissions - Former GHC Students
|"I love GHC. It was a great starting point for me and really helped develop me as a student and as a person. Looking back on the time I have spent at GHC, I don't think I could have made a better decision." – Brittany VanHorn|
- Have not been enrolled at GHC for more than one year
- Have not been dismissed from another institution since last attending GHC
Steps to Enrollment
Complete a GHC Application for Admission and pay the application fee

Provide proof of lawful presence
- All applicants to USG schools, who seek to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes, will be required to provide validation of residency and lawful presence (http://www.highlands.edu/site/admissions-verifying-lawful-presence) in both the State of Georgia and the United States.
Visit the Check Admissions Status (CAS) link (https://discovery.highlands.edu:8888/pls/APPSTATUS/appl_status.login) for live status updates to your record
- Please allow a minimum processing time of 2 weeks.
- Complete COMPASS testing (if applicable) as indicated under the CAS link
After the CAS link shows you have been readmitted (*admission decisions are term specific), e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an advising / registration appointment with an academic advisor.
- As a returning student, you are not required to attend orientation; however, you are strongly encouraged to do so. During orientation you will meet with key members of the Georgia Highlands College advising staff and learn how to access your personal student records through Banner/SCORE, the online GHC student information system. You can schedule an orientation session through the Check Admissions Status link.
