Reinhardt University and Georgia Highlands College recently signed an articulation agreement to allow just that. Students who have completed their Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree from GHC and want to continue on to earn their bachelor’s degree from Reinhardt can now seamlessly transfer to the University upon meeting admissions standards for transferring and the specific requirements for the student’s selected major.
