This checklist will help you finalize preparations for joining us this fall. Many of these processes are explained in detail in the College Catalog.
In addition to the items below it is also very important that you have visited campus and applied for financial assistance. If you have not visited campus, call the Office of Admissions at 1-800-788-9985 and schedule a visit as soon as possible. It is important you meet with an admission counselor to explore your options at GC.

If you applied prior to March 15 and have not received your acceptance letter by April 1, please contact the Admissions Office at 1-800-788-9985. All students completing applications after March 15 will receive their admission notification in three to four weeks after all items have been received.
Step 2Have you submitted your $200.00 enrollment deposit to the Admissions Office? Yes No
YesThank You! Please proceed with Step 3.
NoThe deposit reserves your place in our Fall enrollment. Admitted students will not receive forms and information to reserve on-campus housing or class registration until the deposit is received. If admitted prior to April 1 you should return your deposit within 30 days of admission, or no later than May 1. Deposits are fully refundable through May 1. If admitted after May 1 the deposit is due within 30 days of admission. Deposits are not refundable after May 1. Please note that housing fills up quickly. Also note the Catalog states "Students with no housing application on file or who have not posted the admissions deposit by May 1 become subject to removal from the incoming class if housing is unavailable." If you have any questions regarding receipt of your deposit, please contact the Admissions Office.
Step 3Have you received your login information (via email) to complete the housing and class preference forms?┬á (These are┬ámade available to you after you have been admitted to the college and have submitted your $200 enrollment deposit.) Yes No
YesBeginning in early February, and weekly thereafter, the Office of Student Life sends a Housing Letter and Information to students who have submitted the $200 enrollment deposit. This letter provides students a username and password to use to log in to the GC New Student Homepage where an online housing form can be found. If you have not submitted the online Housing Form to Student Life, please do so as soon as possible. Housing preferences and roommates assignments are more easily accommodated the earlier your housing form is received. If you have received your letter but misplaced it or would like to obtain a paper form, please contact Laura Aispuro at 502-863-7969 or your admissions counselor. For questions about the medical forms please contact Lloyd Clark at 502-863-7969 If you have submitted your form online you may proceed with Step 4.
NoHousing Information and medical forms are mailed by the Student Life Office shortly after your your $200.00 has been received (Beginning early February, see step 2).

NoInformation Technology Services sends email and network account applications to all newly registered students at the end of July each summer.
