Over 1,000 seats are still available for classes for Grand Rapids Community College’s second summer semester, although the deadline to enroll is steadily approaching. The semester will begin on June 29, currently classes within the School of Arts and Sciences and Workforce Development available.
Summer enrollment here at GRCC has increased 9% from last year and almost 4% from the 2019 pre-COVID-19 totals.
If you have already been accepted into the college, you can enroll in courses through your MyGRCC account by going to the Online Center.
A variety of classes from all sorts of programs are open, from computer information systems, business administration, math, biology, psychology, and more. GRCC will continue to waive the online course fees for classes this summer, as well as the parking fees in all three GRCC ramps – Bostwick, Lyon, and Sneden, through Aug. 16.
For students who attend other four-year institutions, summer classes here at GRCC are a valuable opportunity to transfer credits back to their home school at a more affordable price. For more information, head to grcc.edu/guest.
Students who are eligible for the Promise Zone scholarship that attend other colleges can use their scholarship to attend GRCC as a guest student. More information can be found at grcc.edu/promisezone.
Additionally, the class enrollment deadline for the Michigan’s Future for Frontliners program is also quickly approaching. Students who have been accepted into the program by the state are required to start classes either this summer or the fall 2021 semester.
Over 5,800 students were accepted into the Frontliners program to attend GRCC. Currently, 1,000 students have enrolled in GRCC’s summer classes through the program. For more information, check out grcc.edu/futuresforfrontliners.
Students who are eligible for the state’s Michigan Reconnect program are also able to sign up for summer classes.
If you are interested in taking summer classes, you must enroll by June 29. Tuition will be due by midnight on the day you enroll in your courses, and if you don’t pay you will be dropped from the classes.
