Financial Aid is intended to help students who might not otherwise be able to attend college. Although the primary responsibility for meeting college costs rests with the student and their family, it is recognized that many families have limited resources and are unable to meet the cost of a college education. GCC offers a full array of financial aid programs—grants, work-study, loans & scholarships—to full- and part-time students. We have financial aid available to help you with the cost of education, which includes fees, books, supplies, transportation and childcare.
The prospect of financing your education can by scary. At GCC, it doesn’t have to be! Our friendly and helpful staff in the Financial Aid Office can answer any questions that you and your family have.
Student Loan Entrance Counseling is mandatory for all new Direct Loan borrowers. You must attend an in-person meeting to understand your responsibilities and rights as a student borrower before any loan funds can be disbursed to the college. Entrance Counseling sessions are scheduled August through October. Download a schedule so you can meet this important requirement!
