A message from the campus:
Thank you for considering Georgia Highlands College, a limited mission, four-year state college within the University System of Georgia. GHC has five campus locations serving all of northwest Georgia in Cartersville, Douglasville, Floyd, Marietta and Paulding. Our students choose Georgia Highlands College for a variety of reasons, but some of the strongest are:
This application should be used only by new applicants who have never applied for admission to Georgia Highlands College. Former applicants who have never earned grades from GHC should complete the Application for Admission Update; former students who last attended and earned grades from Georgia Highlands College three or more semesters from the returning semester should complete the Application for Update/Readmission. The update and the readmissions applications are located at http://www.highlands.edu/site/admissions-forms in printable format.
Please pay close attention to the term selected on the application. The fall term begins mid-August, the spring term begins in January and the Summer term includes a May, June, and July term.
Prior to the application deadline, students should submit the application, the application fee and all required admissions documents including official copies of the most recent transcripts. Application deadlines for each term can be found at http://www.highlands.edu/site/admissions-deadlines.
Care should be taken to answer each question completely and accurately as these responses determine your residency status and tuition rate. Leaving the residency questions blank will result in being charged out-of-state tuition rates. If a student has difficulty with interpreting a question, contact a GHC representative at one of our locations listed below.
The documents required to complete the admissions process can be determined by reviewing the Application Procedures information below. Note that failure to list the applicant’s high school and all colleges previously or currently attended may result in disqualification of the application. This includes colleges you enrolled but did not complete the term. All documents submitted to Georgia Highlands College become the property of Georgia Highlands College and we are unable to provide copies of any document submitted.
Approximately two weeks following our receipt of an application, an online account is created to enable the applicant to track the admissions status online through the Check Admissions Status link located on the GHC home page.
All applicants accepted for admission or readmission to Georgia Highlands who seek to be classified as in-state for tuition purposes, will be required to provide validation of residency and lawful presence in both the State of Georgia and the United States. Information about the documents required to satisfy this requirement may be found at http://www.highlands.edu/site/admissions-verifying-lawful-presence. In some cases, the college may request additional documentation.
If you need any assistance, please contact the GHC location of your choice.
