GGC began offering block schedules to incoming full-time first-time students on a voluntary basis in Fall 2012 with 40 course blocks available. The College has expanded the pilot and enrolled all full-time first-time students with less than 12 hours of college-level credit in course blocks designed to support the student’s anticipated major. Course blocks have been developed for each meta-major and specialized for possible learning support requirements. Upon acceptance, students are informed of the block scheduling process and given a limited set of appropriate blocks to use in selecting options. Registrar’s Office staff then enroll students in one of their chosen blocks. Students are given their schedule when they attend new student orientation.
