  • Be maintaining a high school cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher.
  • maintaining a high school cumulative GPA of 2.5 or higher,  If the student has not yet established a high school transcript, the application will be reviewed on a case by case basis to be decided by both the high school counselor and GRCC's Academic Outreach Office.
  • approved by your high school counselor/administrator,
  • meet GRCC prerequisites for college courses.

Applications are best received by the following dates to increase class selection opportunities:

What is a transcript?

A transcript is a record of all the classes a student has taken in their high school career and the grades they earned. Each transcript should include two semesters per academic year, and a cumulative grade point average for a 4.0 grading scale. Please see example.

How do you apply?

Send your application, your transcript and a copy of your state approved test scores to the Academic Outreach Office at GRCC.

If I am a homeschooled student, who signs as my counselor/principal?

Most homeschooled students obtain academic guidance from their parent/guardian. In this case, your parent guardian would be required to sign in both the "parent/guardian" and "counselor/principal" places.
