Paperwork may be completed in advance of enrollment and brought to any on-site enrollment. 

Students are responsible for their own textbooks for Medical Terminology, Criminal Investigation, Certified Nurse Aid, and any online class that they may take.  GBHS provides textbooks for general education college credit classes.

Business Office Policy: Students will be enrolled regardless of payment or non-payment and will not be dropped.  The amount owed is the student's responsibility and the balance will remain on the student's account as a "hold" until payment is remitted.

Students with balances owed on previous semesters will not be permitted to enroll - No Exceptions.

Updated placement policy concerning dual and concurrent classes at the following high schools:  Beginning with the Fall Semester 2015, the ASSET Reading test will no longer be required of ALL College Advantage students.  Only students taking English Comp I and II  classes will need to qualify for the class by taking the ASSET Reading test (in conjunction with the writing test).  Students taking CNA classes will need to take the reading test in order to qualify for the class.  This change is effective beginning with Fall Semester 2015, and credit will not be awarded retroactively to students who were not able to take classes based on prior requirements. There are no other prerequisite changes at this time.
