Visiting Great Bay Community College

We encourage all potential students to attend an information session, campus tour, or open house to see first-hand all that Great Bay has to offer. Students are not required to meet with an Admissions Counselor as part of the admissions process, so this is a great opportunity to get all the information you need to apply. We invite you to find the event that works best for you and your program.

We would love to have you visit our campus, learn more about our programs, transfer opportunities and how to begin the application process.

Register for events using the links below, or view the full calendar.
