To complete the application process, use the following steps. Remember, you must be a Junior or Senior when you take a Tech Prep class, unless the classes are a sequence (e.g., the sequencee of Welding I, II, and III) in which case you must take at least one of the classes as a Junior or Senior.

To receive your credits you must earn an "A" or "B" in your Tech Prep class. To receive your Tech Prep credits at the end of the school year, after you receive your grades, you will need to pay GBC New Student fee of $10. You can pay in person at a GBC Campus, online at the MyGBC Self-Service Center (after signing in, click on "Registration"), or by mailing a check to:

To receive a copy of your GBC transcript for transfer to another institution, if you have not previously enrolled in GBC courses and will not attend GBC in the fall, you must pay the $10 new student fee and complete a transcript request to receive a copy. Students planning on attending GBC do not need to pay the $10 new student fee, as it will be added into the first semester tuition.
