Occupational Support

Our Occupational Support Program wants to ensure you have equity in your career and employment goals by providing advising and support services to eligible students who are enrolled in one or two-year occupational programs. Most of our students are juggling family, working towards their first professional job, learning English, or experiencing some time of difficulty in school or job changes.

Meet with an advisor

We're here to provide academic guidance and support — virtually or by phone.

Schedule an advising appointment

  • You'll be prompted to log in to your MyGRCC account to schedule an appointment.
  • After you've logged in, select "appointments" in the left-hand sidebar to schedule.

If this is your first time using our new scheduling software, you may be asked to answer three brief questions before making your appointment.
