Adult Learner Focus
Adding school to the list of activities in your busy life requires balancing family, work, and other life commitments. While this may seem overwhelming at first, with desire, persistence, and help from GHC’s professors, advisors, and professional staff, you can get on the right track.
Here at GHC, eLearning consists of web-based, eCore, and hybrid courses. While there are unique requirements within each type of course, they provide a set of flexible alternatives to the traditional college classroom that affords the adult learner the opportunity to find the best fit in course selection.
