No application fee and quick admission virtual events launched at GHC

October 27, 2020–8:26 a.m.


Applicants to Georgia Highlands College (GHC) now have an opportunity to receive an immediate admissions decision for the spring, summer or fall 2021 semester by registering for an Instant Decision Day.

Instant Decision Day not only expedites the process for enrollment, but it also helps applicants save money by waiving the college’s application fee.

The events are all virtual, and participants can register at

“Instant Decision Day helps applicants reduce the entire admissions process to one day rather than having to spread the application process over a course of weeks and/or months. We want to assist our students in any way, shape or form that we can,” Director of Admissions Maggie Schuyler said. “We are simplifying the admissions process and giving everyone more hands-on assistance.”

Applicants can participate in one of three virtual Instant Decision Days on the following dates:

  • Register by Monday, Nov. 2, for an Instant Decision Day on Wednesday, Nov. 4
  • Register by Monday, Nov. 9, for an Instant Decision Day on Wednesday, Nov. 11
  • Register by Monday, Nov. 16, for an Instant Decision Day on Wednesday, Nov. 18

Applicants should request their high school transcripts via their high school guidance counselor to be sent to GHC Admissions. If they have attended another college or university, then they should request their transcripts from the institution’s Registrar’s Office to be sent to GHC Admissions.

All transcripts should be sent via an electronic transcript issuing services such as eScrip-Safe, the National Student Clearinghouse, or GAFutures.

“To expedite the process, Georgia Highlands College recommends applicants submit their required documentation electronically,” Schuyler said.

In addition, future students can meet with an admissions counselor via the GHC Virtual Hub (, Monday through Friday. They may also schedule a personalized on-campus tour at any GHC campus location in Rome, Cartersville, Dallas, Douglasville or Marietta by filling out an online form (visit.highlands.ed).
