GCC’s online courses allow students to complete all course requirements from their home or office. Students trying to balance work, family and education can fit online college courses into their own schedule, allowing them to pursue their education.
Regular interaction with instructors is possible through online chat or video chat, email, phone, and online discussion areas dedicated to class questions and conversation. Regular access to a computer and the internet is required to complete an online class from GCC, as well as a basic understanding of computer usage and how to send and receive email.
Fully online classes offer 100% of instruction online. You never need to visit GCC’s campus to complete your coursework (but a lot of our online students love coming here anyway, to study or work in our library or take advantage of our student services).
Hybrid classes may require occasional meetings on campus, but generally 50%-99% of course work can be completed online. If you’re considering an online class, but you’re not sure if it’s a good fit for your learning style, a hybrid class might be a great place to start!
