Since GCCC has seen growth over the past decade or so, additional classrooms with upgraded technology have improved the quantity and quality of learning.

While GCCC offers traditional student service offerings such as career and academic counseling GCCC’s growth has led to an improved and expanded student center and student services buildings.

Student at This School - Grad Year 2016

Overall Rating

Instructors are great! Infrastructure is no good. Computer problems all during Fall 2013. Lab Closed the last 5 weeks of the Fall 2013 year due to inability of Computer Services to fix the problem. No security for Student Folders, open to anybody encourages copying and cheating on homework.
