Reinhardt University in Waleska is partnering with Georgia Highlands College to allow for a more seamless transition for those with an associate’s degree to go on and earn a bachelor’s degree.

Leaders of the two schools recently signed an articulation agreement to allow students who have completed their associate of arts or associate of science degree from GHC, which has a main campus in Floyd County and five other campus sites in north Georgia, to continue on to earn their bachelor’s degree from Reinhardt if they can meet admissions standards for transferring and the specific requirements for the student’s selected major.

“The articulation agreement between Georgia Highlands College and Reinhardt University ensures students a smooth transfer to baccalaureate and graduate degree programs,” said Dr. J. Thomas Isherwood, Reinhardt president. “It gives the two institutions the opportunity to build together for the future.”

Under the agreement, Reinhardt will accept the GHC student’s earned core curriculum requirements fulfilled with several exceptions, but not limited to: a C grade or better in English 101 and 102 or 103 or Communication 103 or Sciences 103; satisfying all Reinhardt admission requirements and policies; and, on a case-by-case basis, meeting additional core curriculum requirements for Professional Standards Commission-approved programs or other individual programs.

For more information about Reinhardt’s admission process, contact the Office of Admission at (770) 720-5526 (Waleska) or (770) 720-5922 (Alpharetta).
