Planning to Transfer Somewhere After GCCC?

2+2. Two years at GCCC, two years at a four-year college or university. That's smart. No, it's brilliant - considering the tuition and fees you'd pay to attend a college or university for all four years.

You can be confident your GCCC credits will be accepted at hundreds of four-year institutions.

And you may just jump on other students when you get there - students who spend their first two years at GCCC are often better prepared for their junior year than non-transfer students.

Planning to Transfer to GCCC From Another Institution?

If you're looking to transfer to GCCC from another college or university, welcome. Most course credits you've earned will transfer to GCCC. We've put together a list to make the transfer process as smooth as possible for you. 

  1. First, you'll need to complete an Application for Admission and TB Questionnaire.
  2. Next, arrange to have your official transcripts from EACH institution you've attended sent to the Registrar's Office.
  3. Apply for financial aid and scholarships.
  4. Take the Academic Skills Assessment. If you haven't completed college-level math or english, or plan to take a course that requires english or math as a pre-requisite, you'll have to take the full assessment. If you've completed english or math at another college, you may not have to take the full assessment, but we'll need to see a "proof of prerequisite." (That's a fancy way of saying grades or transcript.)
