Course Delivery Modes

Courses tailored to wellness

Due to the continued outbreak of COVID-19, we are modifying the delivery of some of our winter 2021 courses.

Beginning Oct. 1, please check your online center to view your winter schedule to see if there have been any changes to the delivery mode of your courses.

If your schedule includes an online, hybrid, or virtual meeting course, it's recommended that you take the distance learning orientation at bb.grcc.edu before the semester begins. The orientation takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and is a great introduction to distance learning and an online class format.

Academic advisors are available by text if you would like to discuss your scheduling options. Text (616) 404-0044 or email advising@grcc.edu.
