GHC named one of the most affordable colleges in the country

Georgia Highlands College (GHC) has recently been ranked as having one of the most affordable tuition rates in the country, by College Consensus.  

According to its website, “The College Consensus method takes a lot of factors into consideration, but for the Most Affordable Online Colleges ranking we only consider one: cost. These are the accredited online schools with the lowest undergraduate tuition and fees for out-of-state students. To be considered for our ranking, colleges must be accredited and recognized by the National Center for Education Statistics while offering at least three bachelor’s degree programs that can be completed completely or primarily online. If you’re interested in a traditional campus-based degree, check our ranking of the Most Affordable Colleges & Universities.” 

Popular bachelor’s degree programs at GHC include one of the “Best Online RN to BSN” nursing options in Georgia and an online Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene. In addition, the college offers online degrees for a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice, a Bachelor of Business Administration in Healthcare Management, a Bachelor of Business in Logistics and Supply Chain Management and a Bachelor of Science in Health Science.    

The college also offers a Bachelor of Science in Building Information Modeling Management and a Bachelor of Science in Environmental and Natural Resources.
