Payment Options for Securing Your Schedule

To secure a course schedule, the student must choose and complete one of the options below. Each semester the student must secure a schedule with the College's Business Office to avoid the Late Payment Fee. The student's GBC Lightning Card must be updated/validated before entering classes.

Once a student has secured a class schedule for a specified semester/session with the Business Office, it is the student's responsibility to make changes to the course schedule within the drop/add timeframe for that semester/session. The student must contact an Advisor in the Financial Aid/Advisement Office to make the official course schedule changes. By attending a course, the student accepts financial responsibility for the full cost of the tuition and fees for that course. A student or parent cannot request a course schedule drop/add after the academic drop period has ended for a particular semester/session. By securing a schedule, the student has acknowledged receipt of the course schedule and is responsible for all tuition charges for the semester/session.
