If you want to study Chemistry at Garden City Community College, then you are likely
planning to transfer to a four-year institution to continue your studies. The Associate
in Science degree in Chemistry program at GCCC not only offers foundational science
courses, but also pays close attention to the requirements of four-year institutions
so that a satisfactory transfer can be made. You will receive a good background in
general chemistry, while also taking Chemistry I and II, Organic Chemistry I and II,
and Chemistry for Health Services. After study at GCCC, you will be prepared to move
into an academic program within the sciences at the university level.
Each semester, you will join 20 to 30 students in your general education courses. As you progress through the more advanced science courses, your class sizes will become smaller, providing increased personal attention for the more difficult subject matter.
Scholarships are available for students in the Chemistry program at GCCC, visit the Financial Aid page for more information about which scholarships you are eligible for.
Your advisement in the Chemistry program is provided directly by the instructors in the program. The faculty also hold office hours in the Fous Math and Science building on campus and are available via phone and email.
