NEWS RELEASE

Georgia Highlands College was listed as one of the top two colleges in Georgia with the “best bang for your tuition,” according to The Penny Hoarder.

The Penny Hoarder is one of the largest personal finance websites and was ranked the No. 1 fastest-growing private media company in the U.S. for the second consecutive year and #25 on the overall list of the fastest-growing private companies in America in 2017.

In its article “We Crunched the Numbers and Found the Best College Bargains in Each State,” The Penny Hoarder analyzed annual tuition cost, net cost, enrollment, acceptance rates and other factors for every college in the country with available data to produce a “bang-for-your-buck ratio.”

The Penny Hoarder “dug into hundreds of megabytes of data and used a statistical technique to weigh the following factors: enrollment; acceptance rate; average net cost (the total cost of attending college, including tuition, books and housing, minus scholarships and other financial aid); in-state tuition cost; median earnings 10 years after graduation; and student loan default rate."

Georgia Highlands College was listed as one of two colleges in Georgia with the best “bang-for-your-buck ratio,” including Georgia Institute of Technology.

Currently, a GHC student can earn a two-year degree for less than $8,000 and a four-year degree for less than $16,000.
