Build your future from anywhere

Online courses offer complete flexibility — whether you have a busy schedule or simply want to stay home and stay safe. You can work toward your academic and career goals where and when it's easiest for you.

Online classes at GRCC

Online courses are just as rigorous as in-person classes, with weekly assignments, discussions, quizzes and interaction.

Most online instruction takes place through Blackboard, our online learning environment where you'll receive assignments from your instructor, upload homework, be connected with classmates and more.

What's a 'virtual' course?

Virtual classes meet online at scheduled times. Virtual classes are for students who prefer to interact with faculty and other students, offering set class times and structure, without the need to come to campus.

What's a 'hybrid' course?

Hybrid courses take place both on-campus and online. In-class instruction is reduced by about 50 percent, while the other 50 percent takes place online.

We make it easy to transfer

If there's a course you need to take that we don't offer, you have the option of taking the class from another community college in Michigan, while still getting your degree at GRCC!

Visit Michigan Colleges Online for a list of courses that you can take and transfer seamlessly to GRCC and beyond.
