GCC has now finalized our class schedule for the fall semester, in conjunction with social distancing requirements and Dept. Public Health and CSCU recommendations.  The schedule is published Here!

We will have a variety of class options for students, with most classes being offered online either synchronously or asynchronously.  Workforce programs requiring hands-on labs will be offered on-campus with appropriate safety measures in place.

Connecticut’s FREE community college program, known as PACT will be available but students MUST register by July 15th.  This is the perfect time to save money and kickstart your future at GCC!

Level 1: (Green) Watch: Practice Usual Precautions – This is the lowest level of risk. Travelers to these countries should stay informed of any recommended practices(ex. required vaccination) prior to departure. It is recommended that travelers continue to monitor the health risk designation for the country.

Level 2: (Yellow) Alert: Practice Enhanced Precautions – This Travel Health Notice describes additional precautions added or defines a specific at-risk population.

Level 3: (Red) Avoid all non-essential travel to this destination – The outbreak is of high risk to travelers and no precautions are available to protect against the identified increased risk.

The CDC’s complete list of travel warnings is available by clicking here.
