Transfer Schools 

“The last two years at GHC have shaped countless years of my future, giving me the confidence to succeed anywhere. Moving out of state, going to a large university, and making the transition to independence were all very scary steps for me.
The perfect stepping stone to success, GHC creates the foundation of an academic plan stretching far beyond its campus. Instructors quickly become mentors, always willing to give advice and guidance.
College is a time of challenge and self-discovery; at GHC, this journey is safe, supportive, and close to home. GHC is just as real as any university—but unlike a large school, you'll never feel lost.”
