Financing Your Academic Goals

An education at Great Basin College is one of the most potentially rewarding investments you may make in your lifetime, and it can be more affordable than you imagine.

GBC has many resources to assist you in funding your studies. The most desirable forms of financial aid for students are scholarships, and federal grants, which do not need to be repaid. Another option is a federal student loan, which will need to be repaid with interest. Federal Parent Loans are another financial avenue. Veterans may be entitled to additional benefits.

If you receive financial aid at GBC, you will need to maintain Satisfactory Progress during the course of your studies. Be sure to familiarize yourself with these academic standards.

In addition, GBC's Career Center can assist you in finding a regular job in the community and provides an online list of jobs currently open for GBC students.
