How to Appply to - GEAP

Recruitment/Selection of GEAP Scholars

The program is highly competitive and the process is very selective. Sixty highly motivated first-time/full-time college freshmen will be selected to be Scholars. Additionally, the program will select another 60 current GPC students. Each applicant must demonstrate his/her financial need.

The requirements for the program are as follows:

First-time Students Must:
• Possess a minimum high school GPA of 2.6 (4.0 scale)
• Be admitted and enrolled as a full-time student (12 or more semester credit hours) at GPC
• Have plans to continue their college careers at one of the GPC-TAG partnering institutions or other colleges and universities

Currently Enrolled Students Must:
• Possess a minimum GPA of 2.6
• Have full-time student status
• Have plans to continue their college careers at one of the GPC-TAG partnering institutions or other colleges and universities

Students interested in becoming a scholar with the GPC Educational Achievement Program should complete the GEAP application online and email it to gpcgeap@gpc.edu no later than July 1st of each year.

Other Selection Criteria:
A number of factors are taken into consideration in selecting GEAP Scholars. Though candidates are viewed on an individual basis, the strength of an in-coming GPC student's secondary preparation is an excellent measure of his/her readiness for college. Of equal value are the student’s personal qualities: maturity, intellectual awareness, and motivation toward learning.

In addition to high school records and personal attributes, aptitude and achievement test scores are other indicators GPC will use in its selection of scholars enrolling at GPC for the first time. GEAP specifically targets highly motivated Hispanic/Latino students that have already been accepted to GPC, and current GPC students approaching their second year, with a demonstrated support services need.
