While many college and high school students use the summer months to take vacations and work, GBC would like to remind students that summer is a perfect time to better prepare yourself for taking classes in the Fall semester.
For new and returning students, it’s never too late to enroll in classes and meet with an advisor to begin planning your success at GBC. All students can enroll in classes until the first day of class, unless the class is full.
From registration to declaring a major, the Admission Advising and Career Center is a one-stop shop.
“We can help any student through the process, whether new or returning,” said Charlene Mitchel, GBC student advisor.“ To many the enrollment and planning process becomes second nature, and we forget what it’s like to be 18-years-old or a returning adult learner. That’s what we’re here for.”
Alongside planning your program of study, GBC advisors also assist with finding other college services that will be helpful to you, including financial aid, tuition planning, scholarships, placement testing, career counseling, student housing and more.
High school students in Elko, Eureka, White Pine, Nye, Lander, Lincoln, Pershing and Humboldt counties can also begin enrolling in classes to receive college and high school credit simultaneously.
Interested high school students should fill out the same online application for GBC admission found at the link listed in the Steps to Register below.
They should also access the Special Admissions Form for High School Students, the Information Release for High School Students, and High School Permission Form, which must be signed by a high school counselor or principal. All these forms are available at http://www.gbcnv.edu/admissions/dualcredit/. For more information, contact your high school counselor or the GBC Director of Continuing Education, Angie de Braga at 775.753.2231.
Below are steps all students can follow when registering for the Fall semester. The Fall 2015 semester begins August 31 and ends December 11.
