Beginning spring 2020, Georgia Highlands College is adding a variety of classes on a condensed schedule that will begin later in the semester. GHC’s new “Late Start Classes” offer students the opportunity to complete certain courses more quickly.
This new model follows a successful pilot on GHC’s Cartersville site fall 2019.
The new “Late Start Session” will begin in February and conclude in May. The first round of classes will start on February 4 and the second round will begin on February 18.
Students may also opt to take “Late Start Classes” during a special “Second Session” that begins on March 5 and also concludes in May.
Applicants should note all “Late Start Classes” condense a traditional class length’s worth of content into a shorter amount of time. All “Late Start Classes” will reward the same number of credits as traditional classes.
“GHC strives to provide scheduling options that are convenient for all of our students, from those just out of high school to working adults seeking to advance their careers,” said Dana Nichols vice president for Academic Affairs. “The new ‘Late Start’ schedules are specifically designed so that students can take a full course load and make the same progress toward graduation as those in the traditional semester schedules.”
