GPC Application for Admission
A $20 non-refundable application fee is due at the time of application submission. Carefully review and complete all sections of the application, especially the residency information. Failure to answer questions correctly or provide information will delay and/or impact admission consideration.
Admission Document Due Dates
A GPC application is valid for three (3) consecutive terms, including the term of application. GPC processes admission documents and renders admission decisions on a rolling basis.
Fall Semester (starts in August) — Due by July 1
Spring Semester (starts in January) — Due by November 1
Summer Semester (starts in late May) — Due by April 1
Late applications and/or documents are accepted, but GPC may be unable to make an admission decision in time for the student to start classes on the first day. The earlier an applicant completes the application and submits all required documents, the greater his or her chance of starting classes on the first day. Late applicants may be able to register for second-half classes if full semester classes already have begun.
