  • Federal and State of Michigan financial aid can only be used to cover the cost of classes required to complete your current active program of study. You can view your current program of study by logging into your MyGRCC account and selecting your Online Center. Once in your Online Center, select the Academic Progress tile to review the courses required for your program of study. You also can see which courses are left to be taken. 
  • If you transfer credits from another college, those transfer credits may be applied toward your program of study and reduce the number of classes required to complete your degree. Be sure to work closely with your academic advisor and use the resources in your MyGRCC account to select and enroll in only those classes required to complete your program of study.
