Paulding Site


GHC proudly serves Northwest Georgia with five convenient locations. The Paulding location was opened in 2009 on the Dallas Town Square, becoming GHC’s fourth location. It provides students with a full range of resources and activities. Students who attend this location will take classes in historic buildings right in the heart of the city.

In addition to all that GHC has to offer, students may also participate in the 2+2 Program with Georgia Highlands College and Kennesaw State University. Students first earn an associate degree from GHC in either Early Childhood Education, General Studies, or Psychology. Then transfer to KSU, located in the Bagby Building at GHC Paulding, to earn a bachelor degree in either Early Childhood Education, Integrated Studies, or Psychology.

GHC’s locations serve thousands of students every year. GHC offers several areas of study, including associate, bachelor’s, and online degree options. Apply now or if you have any questions contact us through GHC411.
