The GCC Advantage
The advantage of earning a certificate from Guam Community College is that the faculty, staff and administrators take to heart its mission - "to be a leader in career and technical workforce development by providing the highest quality education and job training in Micronesia."
Our instructors care about and want their students to succeed. Often, they will spend the extra time to make sure a concept is clear, and that students understand the practical, real-life applications of the classroom concepts they are learning. Also, GCC's partnerships with over 100 businesses ensure that what is taught in the classroom corresponds with what businesses need GCC graduates to know when they become employees. These partnerships include internships and apprenticeships that often lead to sustainable jobs and careers in our island’s workforce.
All students who declare a major are assigned an Academic Advisor. Students are strongly urged to visit your advisor, who can help you draft an educational plan with course sequencing that meets your personal, academic, and career goals.
