March 20 Update – Commencement Postponed

Per the guidance of the University System of Georgia, Georgia Highlands College will postpone the graduation ceremony set for May 16 and nursing pinning set for May 15. Students will still graduate consistent with academic standards, but the actual ceremonies will not be held as originally scheduled.

The USG and GHC continue to follow Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance to avoid gatherings.

We will be rescheduling the 2020 graduation ceremonies, including the nursing pinning, for a later date when we are confident of the safety and well-being for our graduates and their guests. We will begin posting additional details as they become available.

Please read more about this decision on the University System of Georgia website.

Additionally, as a reminder, GHC will be implementing a new directive from the USG to complete the Spring 2020 semester through remote learning programs. No classes will be held in person on any of GHC’s locations for the remainder of the semester.

Please note that all remote learning for GHC students will begin on Monday, March 30 and continue for the remainder of the semester.

GHC will remain open but will operate with minimal staffing on campus to ensure the continuity of critical services. All other services are available in a remote setting.

As we work to keep you informed and we continue to diligently address challenges surrounding COVID-19 together, please continue to speak with your instructors or immediate supervisor about any questions you may have.
