Congratulations! Graduating from high school, or getting your GED® or HiSET® certificate, is no small feat. And enrolling at GCC is a step towards a career you can be proud of. In just two years, you could leave prepped and ready with an associate degree or one year for most certificate degrees. Or, if you're like most GCC students, you'll have your gen eds behind you and ready to the finish at a traditional four-year college or university.


If you are currently in high school and looking to get a jump on credits, you may want to dual-enroll in college classes – an option for high school juniors and seniors. Just check out the Steps to Dual Enroll at GCC and you're on your way.


Here's what you need to know to apply:

You can apply any time during the year.
