Georgia Highlands College, commonly known as Georgia Highlands, is a two-year community college associate degree-granting unit of the University System of Georgia, and located in Rome, Georgia, USA; with satellite campuses in Heritage Hall, Rome, Georgia; Cartersville, Georgia; Marietta, GA; Douglasville, GA and Dallas, GA.

Established in 1968 and opened in 1970 as Floyd Junior College, the school was originally named for Floyd County, of which Rome is the county seat, which was in turn named after John Floyd. It was later shortened to just Floyd College. In April 2005, the Georgia Board of Regents voted to change the school's name and on August 1, 2005, the institution officially became Georgia Highlands College to reflect the regional nature of the population it serves.
