5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: i love it, the full college experience.

4 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: I really haven't had any difficulty with anything academic-related.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: Registering for classes will always be a hassle due to the competition for seats, but teachers always sign a waiver to add you anyways. Everything always runs smoothly and works out. I don't have anything to work around other than school, the rest revolves around that.

5 College Freshman

Academic Flexibility: The professors here are very friendly and understanding. If you have to go home early for something or you are needed at work for something, they will work with you on what needs to be done.

2 College Sophomore

Academic Flexibility: I'm frustrated with the lack of interest the advisors seem to have as well as their unwillingness to spend the time to offer me help when I specifically ask for it.

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.

Tips for Earning Credits

  • Talk with your professors. They may be able to convince the Registrar Office.
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.
Work & Life Experience Credits
Most people surveyed haven't been able to get credit for work/life experience or haven't tried.
Typical Session Length
15 weeks
Course Registration Process
Students register for courses through an online system. The difficulty level in registering for classes depends on the students' majors. Class conflicts between core subjects and classes required for degrees are the most common problem that students have during registration. But academic advisers help students as questions arise.
