Graduating Soon?

It's time to apply for your degree! In fact it’s a little late. Come to the IP office to pick up your degree application right away! You will also need to print a copy of your "Degree Audit" and submit that with your application at the cashier's office. The cost is just $10. If you apply for your degree, in May you will receive more information about participating in the (optional) June graduation ceremony.

Schedule your NSA
If this is your first academic quarter, you must schedule your New Student Appointment, "NSA", with your assigned advisor at the IP office. Your advisor will help you plan your education at GRCC and answer any questions you have. If you fail to complete your appointment by the 8th week of the quarter, you registration account will be blocked. Yikes!

Remember the 12 Credit Rule!
