Start early to complete your admissions application so you can enroll in GCC classes.

Students who complete dual enrollment courses in high school are more likely to stay in college and complete their degree on time. If you are a high school junior or senior, you can enroll in selected college courses offered at and in cooperation with your high school.

Please do not wait until the deadline to enroll, as late enrollment will not be allowed. These dates cannot be extended.
For admission to the GCC College Now program you must:

  • First complete an application process at your high school to apply to participate
  • Once you have approval to join the GCC program, you are welcome to complete a GCC College Now application for admission.
