Floyd Campus



GHC proudly serves Northwest Georgia with five convenient locations. The Floyd location was opened in 1970. When GHC was founded as Floyd Junior College in 1970, this location was the original campus. It provides students with a full range of resources and activities. Students who attend this site will have access to a 20-acre tract behind the campus that has been set aside as a protected natural wetland ecosystem, which includes a 1,200-foot boardwalk and two observation platforms. The Floyd location is also home to Paris Lake, where students may use canoes, kayaks, or paddle boards in the water or enjoy the outdoors from a gazebo or pavilion.

The Floyd location is in Floyd County, just six miles south of Rome, which is located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains and built at the confluence of the Etowah and Oostanaula Rivers, forming the Coosa River. Floyd County encompasses the Rome Braves (Minor League Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves), the Chieftains Museum & Major Ridge Home, and Historic Cave Spring. For more information on the area, please visit: romegeorgia.org

GHC’s locations serve thousands of students every year. Compared to other colleges, you won’t find a better education with a better value anywhere. 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.

Hi and welcome to the Floyd Campus of Georgia Highlands College. For more than forty years Georgia Highlands College has been serving the residents of Floyd and surrounding counties. In May 2011 we became a limited-mission, four-year state college within the University System of Georgia and continue to offer more than 40 of the most popular program options including nursing, business, education and psychology to name just a few. Our tuition rates remain among the lowest in the country, and almost 80 percent of our students receive some form of financial assistance. Our focus and dedication remain on the success of our students. At GHC, your success is our success. To aid you in meeting your educational goals, we employ a caring faculty and staff, keep our class sizes small, offer flexible course schedules and provide private tutoring services. Please continue to review our website and learn more about what GHC has to offer. Better yet, to experience the real rhythm and flow of college life at GHC, schedule a private visit to our campus. We hope to see you soon.
