For non-Nevada residents enrolled in only online classes, there is an additional charge of $44.00 per credit for lower division courses and $72.00 per credit for upper division courses. Please see our Fees and Tuition page for additional information.
At this time, Great Basin College may not deliver classes or programs through distance education to students residing in Massachusetts. These restrictions are due to federal regulations and regulations within these states. Colleges and universities are required to be authorized to offer online degree programs in states other than their own, and authorization does not currently exist for these states.
This regulation does not apply to students from other states who are currently living in Nevada; it is only for students remaining in their home state and taking our online classes and programs. If you have recently moved and the address information we have for you is not current, please update your mailing address through the "My GBC" link on the GBC homepage, or by submitting a Student Information Change Form to the GBC Admissions and Records Office.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 775-753-2102 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
For information on the federal regulations restricting the dissemination of distance education across state boundaries, Federal regulations by the U.S. Department of Education are found at the following URL:
In addition, state regulations found within the Department of Education of each state define individual state restrictions and conditions.
