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 www.gbcnv.edu/financial/.
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.
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 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 2016 semester begins August 29 and ends December 9.
