Young Harris College educates, inspires and empowers students to be strong, capable, well-rounded leaders full of integrity and character. To realize your full potential, we push you to open your mind and heart. We encourage you to embark on a lifelong pursuit of knowledge and truth. We’ll also instill in you the responsibility that comes with such an education.
With a student/faculty ratio of 10:1 and a typical class size of 16, our intimate setting allows students and faculty to work closely, forging nurturing relationships and strong bonds that endure well past graduation. Young Harris College has been able to accomplish more because of our size, and you can too. Widespread opportunities exist in the classroom, on the field, on stage and in the community—so you can build your skills, experience and résumé.
Our small, private institution has launched thousands of careers and we’re proud of alumni success in various industries all over the globe. But there’s one thing Young Harris alumni have in common: a fierce loyalty to the College and a lifelong relationship with the people who helped them realize their true potential.
This is the value of Young Harris College and you’ll see this is an education worthy of investment. With so much of your future riding on these formative four years, you can’t afford not to come here. That said, more than 90 percent of our students receive financial aid. We review each family’s situation to determine need-based assistance—which may be in the form of grants, loans and/or campus employment. Also, we consider all admitted freshmen for merit-based assistance—which can be added to HOPE and other scholarship awards.
