    Process:

    In order for any student to register for these courses, STEM major or otherwise, they must email SSA@gcc.mass.edu from their GCC e-mail address. In the body of the email, they must list their ID number, major and the course they wish to take. Students must have their prerequisites in order (and overridden if necessary) before sending this e-mail. All seats in these courses are first-come, first-served: no seats can be reserved while waiting for documents. Students will receive a confirmation e-mail when they have been registered. If there are no more grant-funded seats available, the coordinator will reach out to the student to inquire if they would like to register for a non-funded seat.

    Billing process for grant-funded seats:

    If the student is a STEM major and there are funded seats available, the bursar will process the grant waiver after the add/drop period. If they receive a bill before that date they should ignore it- if they accidentally pay the bill they will be refunded by the bursar.
