About Us

Since 1970, Georgia Highlands College has served the citizens of Northwest Georgia and Northeast Alabama. Founded as Floyd Junior College, it now serves more than 5,700 students in the region.  It became a limited-mission, four-year state college in May 2011.

GHC has added other teaching sites over the years, and now provides instruction at the founding campus in Floyd County; Heritage Hall in downtown Rome, which houses health sciences; the Cartersville campus, the largest of all the campuses; a site in Marietta on the campus of Southern Polytechnic State University; a campus in Paulding County, on the square in Dallas; and an instructional site in Douglas on Stewart Parkway in Douglasville.

To maximize convenience, Georgia Highlands has also expanded its offerings of online, DVD and hybrid courses.
