Ready for your second chance? GGC has your back this summer.

GGC is proud to invite you to take advantage of Second Chance Summer. No one was prepared for the challenges brought during 2020, and GGC is here to help you make up some of the losses and take advantage of the lessons learned.

If you struggled and didn't complete key courses during 2020, GGC has specifically designed course sections to give you a second chance during the summer 2021 semester. Class sizes have been capped at half the size of a regular GGC course and set up with more individualized attention and enhanced academic coaching. There are even scholarships available.

A successful Second Chance Summer grade (A, B or C) replaces your earlier D, F or W in your grade point average (GPA).

Failing to complete a Second Chance Summer class has the same effect as failing to complete any class. See GGC Catalog for more details on academic standards of progression.
