Financial Aid

If you need financial aid assistance, you should submit the 2018-2019 FAFSA at your earliest convenience. It takes 7-10 business days for our financial aid office to receive the results of your financial aid application and there may be additional paperwork needed by our financial aid office. If you have any questions about your next steps in the financial aid process, please give our staff a call at (616) 234-4030.


It is also never too early to start exploring your academic pathway. You can browse the ten academic pathways and related career information by visiting the GRCC Catalog.
