Register Now for Fall Semester

More Convenient Options Than Ever Before

Register Now for Fall Semester.Fall registration is open at GBC, and there are more convenient options for students than ever before.

Now offering over 25 degrees programs completely online, GBC is making higher education more accessible for students who want to further their skills on their own time, and at their own pace.

For students who favor live instruction, GBC still offers many classes taught in-person at its main campus in Elko and branch campuses across the state. Classes are also made available to branch campuses via interactive video.

In addition to many online classes, GBC Career Technical Education offers an associate’s degree and certificate in Electrical Systems Technology that is taught in a night class format at the Elko campus. Classes run Monday through Thursday 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Students who are interested in learning more about GBC’s convenient options are encouraged to meet with an advisor to find out just how flexible going to GBC can be.

From registration to declaring a major, the Admission Advising and Career Center is a student’s one-stop shop.

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. Contact the Admission Advising and Career Center by calling 775-753-2180.

All students can enroll in classes until the first day of class, unless the class is full. Most classes begin August 29.

Financial Aid is encouraging students attending in the Fall to fill out the 2016-2017 Re-award Scholarship application. The deadline is September 2 by 5 p.m. This can be accessed at

A relatively new policy at GBC requires students to pay for classes in full prior to when classes begin, or sign-up for a Payment Plan through the MyGBC Student Center. A Payment Plan will allow you to make 4 small payments during the semester.
