Higher quality, lower cost: GHC is a great investment in your future.

Welcome to GHC!This College is a great place to start the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program.
You can earn a two-year Associate degree suitable for transfer to any public four-year school in Washington State or one tailored to the transfer school of your choice.

If you are looking for job skills, our workforce training programs can prepare you to enter the world of work after just one or two years. In some cases, the training time is even shorter. And, depending on the program, you can earn a college degree, a certificate, or both.

Grays Harbor College basic skills programs can help you work toward earning your GED® or high school diploma (HS21+), improve your skills to college level, or improve your English skills in our English as a Second Language (ESL) program.

GHC provides an excellent education at an affordable price. You can accomplish your objectives for a fraction of the cost of a four-year college or university or other for-profit technical colleges.

Cost Comparison

Students who complete their freshman and sophomore coursework at GHC before transferring to universities as juniors are making a smart move: they attend smaller classes with more individual instruction from dedicated faculty with advanced degrees whose primary job is to teach, not to do research. They also pay about half as much tuition and earn similar or higher GPAs compared to students who begin their college experience at the university.

*Note: these are estimated costs for tuition & fees only. There are many other costs associated with attending college, especially ones that are out-of-town.
