Prospective students must submit an application for admissions either online or through the mail. Students need to submit their official transcripts, take a placement test and pay a $5 testing fee before they can register and pay for classes.

The admissions requirements for Gulf Coast are straightforward; as they have an open-door policy, all eligible applicants who possess a high school diploma or equivalent will be accepted. In addition to the testing fee, there is also a non-refundable $20 application fee.
