A first-time student at GRCC needs to complete a Construction Trades Application form and the NCCER Release of Information form (both available on the Web site) and fax them to the Construction Trades Department at (616) 234-3824. The student will then be issued a Student ID number that can be used to register for future courses at GRCC.
The tuition rate for Construction Trades classes is:
$734 per course (subject to change per Board of Trustees approval)
Plus $60 facilities fee
The program no longer differentiates between students inside or outside of the district and charges one rate per course.
Tuition is due August 3, 2015 for fall semester. Please have your tuition paid by 5:00 pm that day or you will be dropped for non-payment. If you are dropped for non-payment you may re-enroll into a course, but we cannot guarantee openings in the same course you were previously enrolled in.
Based on the enrollment figures as of August 3, 2015 the Construction Trades Department will make a decision as to which courses will run or be canceled due to low enrollment.
Please refer to the Tuition webpage for more information on refunds and policies.
A payment procedure for each course is listed in the Construction Trades Enrollment Information. Students are encouraged to pay for courses at the time of registration to avoid being dropped from the course or having the course cancelled due to low enrollment. All tuition must be paid by the tuition due date, or the student will be dropped. Once dropped, a student can re-register for a course if it is available, but payment must then be made at the time of registration.
