GHC@Night gives students flexible pathway to graduation

Ainsley Howard
Students have new options for night classes.

An innovative approach to learning for aspiring business professionals kickstarted this fall semester.

GHC@Night offers “Education that fits your life” allowing students the opportunity to complete the Associate of Science in Business Administration pathway while considering the dynamic lifestyle of today’s learners.

For many adults, juggling work, family and other commitments can be overwhelming. Recognizing this challenge, GHC@Night revolutionizes the learning experience by adapting instruction and learning outside a typical 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. schedule.

Through this program initiative, the college is bringing together in-person instruction along with the flexibility of online learning, offering an accommodated pathway to higher education at an advanced pace.

“This dynamic approach aligns with the demands of today’s fast-paced world and prepares students for the challenges and opportunities they’ll encounter in their careers,” said Professor of Accounting, Annette Maddox.

Students are required to attend just one in-person class on Tuesday nights at the Cartersville site, combined with up to two online courses every eight-week term. This structure ensures students can earn their degree with a fixed schedule in two years without disrupting their daily routines.

“Ultimately, GHC@Night opens doors for students who may have previously faced barriers to traditional daytime programs and do not want to be solely online,” Maddox said.

With competitive tuition and fees, scholarships and diverse payment strategies, GHC@Night opens doors for new learners, offering them the tools, support and flexibility they need to redefine their futures.

“Many students will share classes, resulting in a supportive and collaborative learning environment,” Maddox said, “I have no doubt that this program will empower students to reach new heights in their academic and professional journeys.”

Interested students should complete the GHC@Night ASBA Interest Form and are encouraged to contact the School of Business and Professional Studies with further questions.
