3. Visit the Student Health Center and submit an updated Student Health Information Form and your shot record to clear your health hold. They will advise you if additional information is required. For more information regarding the Student Health Center.


4. Take the Placement Test again if you have not already met English and Math requirements. View the GCC placement tool to understand your results.
