*NEW* Programs for 2012-2013: College Experience and Foundation for Success

Two programs--College Experience and Foundation For Success--will help our students be better adjusted and more successful at GRCC and in the United States. The programs are required for certain students. The cost of each one-quarter program is $100. Due to the late notice, we're giving a scholarship to each new Fall 2012 student for these fees. Yes, the programs are free to Fall 2012 students! Students will be charged as of Winter 2013.
