Occupational Support

GRCC's Occupational Support Program offers advising, support, advocacy, financial resources and help with career readiness for eligible students.

Most of our students are navigating school along with family commitments, tight finances, work schedules and complex lives.  Occupational Support advisors partner with you to build a safety net that meets your needs and helps you get to the career you want.

Meet with an advisor

We're here to provide academic guidance and support — in person, 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.
