5 College Junior

Academic Flexibility: Young Harris College has been the most awarding experience of my life. The professors and staff are as nice as they can be and they genuinely care about the students at the college. At YHC, students are not just another number, but a person. The professors aim to have a personal yet professional relationship with their students and want their students to get good grades. The social life at YHC is great. Everyone is really friendly. I always was happy with my class schedule. Although it is in a small town, their is an abundant of opportunities to get involved with the community and the school. It was a great experience. I wouldn't trade the memories and friends I made their for anything.

Classes at Young Harris are academically rigorous and require many study hours to succeed. Course selection is fairly easy, and academic advisers give students the information they need during the process. Registering for classes usually gives the majority of students what they want due to the small number of students. The school also keeps class sizes small, which gives the students better opportunities to interact with the professors and each other. In addition, the school accepts course credit for a score of 4 on Advanced Placement exams.

It is best to sign up for classes as soon as registration begins to get the classes you want and need. The core classes, such as biology, fill up the most quickly due to small class sizes. Usually, academic advisers can squeeze one or two more people into a class, but this is not always the case.

Academic/Testing Requirements
Acceptance is based on high school GPA and SAT/ACT scores. After reviewing a student's file, YHC will calculate a GPA based on only academic coursework, and then an index is calculated using academic GPA and test scores. This index is used to determine both admissions and scholarship eligibility.

Course Registration Process
Students register for courses through an online system. The difficulty level in registering for classes depends on the students' majors.
