The estimated tuition and fee costs to attend GCC can be calculated using the tuition and fee chart below. The college offers no reduction in tuition and fees for auditing a course. Credit-free courses are priced separately by our non-credit (Community Ed) department. Tuition charges per credit vary depending on whether you are an in-state, out-of-state, or NEBHE student. The college service fees are separate from tuition and are charged at the same rate per credit regardless of whether you are an in-state, out-of-state, or NEBHE student. Evening, summer, and intersession charges are assessed at the same rate regardless of your residency category. In addition, the health records administration fee and student activity fee are only charged for day class schedules. The table below shows estimated charges for in-state residents.
