Georgia Highlands College Press Release –
Starting this summer, Georgia Highlands College (GHC) brings even greater access to one of the most affordable colleges in the state and country to Marietta. GHC’s newest location will be at 1090 Northchase Parkway.
The former GHC Marietta location was a small site opened on the Southern Polytechnic State University campus in 2005 (now Kennesaw State University).
GHC is a state college in the University System of Georgia (USG) and currently offers over 40 areas of study both in the classroom and online with associate degree and bachelor’s degree options at one of the most affordable rates in the state and country with a cost of less than $8,000 and less than $16,000 respectively.
GHC students will kick off the summer semester in June at the new location. The Northchase Center is currently undergoing renovations to further meet the needs of students and the community ahead of the opening of GHC’s new site.
“One of our chief goals at GHC is to provide an opportunity to students through access to a college degree with little to no debt after graduating,” Marietta Campus Dean Ken Reaves said. “We do this through a range of degree options, flexible scheduling, and career-focused outcomes that put traditional students as well as students who may have full-time jobs and families to take care at the center of everything we do. We see student success at our college as graduating from a high-quality program for a low cost and ready for a career or ready to pursue a higher college degree program.”
Reaves added that moving to this new location in Marietta will allow GHC to increase its presence in Marietta and continue serving as the USG’s primary access institution in the region.
GHC’s Marietta location will be moving from 1100 South Marietta Parkway to 1090 Northchase Parkway.
