GCC is the Place to Be!

Open House Sessions & Friday Visit Days

Batavia, NY-  Ready to begin your college experience? Not sure where to start? GCC is truly the place to be! At Genesee Community College, our admissions team and student success coaches, know how daunting it can be to pursue a degree or even certificate program. So, we’re here to help!

To get started, attend a Spring Open House! The first will be on Wednesday, March 7, 2018 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. If evenings are difficult for you, then join us on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.

“During both Open House sessions, prospective students and their families will experience all GCC has to offer,” said GCC’s Assistant Dean for Admissions and Recruitment Lindsay Gerhardt. “You can tour campus, get all your financial aid questions answered, learn about student services and get a real taste for campus life at Genesee Community College!”

Representatives from GCC’s student services offices will be on hand to answer questions about admissions, career and transfer services, student activities, athletics and you can even sign up for a financial aid session. Tours of the campus will be available, including the new Student Success Center, Richard C. Call Arena and College Village – GCC’s apartment-style residential housing.
