GRCC’s virtual open house successful

GRAND RAPIDS, Nov. 5, 2020: Students and potential students who put their education on hold this fall can get back on track during Grand Rapids Community College’s winter 2021 semester, with college experts able to answer questions at a Saturday virtual open house.

The event was 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 7. GRCC staff and faculty help navigate through admissions and financial aid processes and discuss eligibility for cost-saving programs such as Futures for Frontliners and the Grand Rapids Promise Zone.

“There are many people who delayed their education because of uncertainty caused by the pandemic, and the upcoming winter 2021 semester is a great opportunity to get back on track,” said Tina Hoxie, associate provost and dean of Student Affairs.

“Opportunities such as Futures for Frontliners and the Grand Rapids Promise Zone scholarships can remove cost as an obstacle, and GRCC offers classes in a variety of formats and schedules. A virtual open house is a great way to find out what might work best for you.”  

This is GRCC’s first large-scale virtual open house, conducted online because of the coronavirus crisis.

Virtual open house topics included:

n  How to explore GRCC’s 10 Academic Pathways and more than 150 degrees.

n  Options to pay for college.

n  How to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, also known as FAFSA.

n  The steps to apply to GRCC.

n  The benefits of earning an associate degree at GRCC and seamlessly transferring to a four-year college or university.

n  About eligibility for the Grand Rapids Promise Zone Scholarship and Futures for Frontliners.

Attendees were entered to win a $500 GRCC scholarship.
