Academic Advisement is available on campus at designated times. Students should consult with an academic advisor in planning their academic schedule in order to complete degree requirements in an expedient manner. Contact the Enrollment Center for specific times or to make an appointment. The GCC Catalog describes graduation and transfer requirements. Required courses may not be available every semester or year. Due to limited course offerings, degree-seeking students may find it necessary to extend completion time lines and attend both day and evening classes.

English Humanities courses encourage personal enrichment through the study of literature. Courses in English as a second language assist foreign speakers to learn to speak, write, and read English.
