Welcome to Georgia Highlands College! Wondering why over 6,000 students across Northwest Georgia (Rome, Cartersville, Marietta, Dallas, and Douglasville) are calling GHC home? Compared to other colleges, you won’t find a better education with a better value anywhere. GHC is one of only two colleges in Georgia listed in a 2015 national database as the “best value” and “best return on investment” in the state. Students at GHC can complete an associate degree for less than $8,000. That’s half the cost for the same courses students take at other colleges and universities across the country. From registration to degree completion, it is our goal to help students every step of the way. Even at half the cost of most colleges and universities nationwide, GHC offers several areas of study, including associate, bachelor’s, and online degree options.
