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.

*Please note due to COVID-19, all GBCC Admissions Events on campus will be postponed until further notice. We encourage you to take advantage of our virtual admissions events below.

Learn about Great Bay, the general admissions process, the transfer opportunities, financial aid and campus life. Although all GBCC operations are currently happening remotely, you can still attend a virtual tour, learn about programs, transfer opportunities and even how to begin the application process.

Virtual Info Sessions are held each week providing information on GBCC’s 50+ associate degree and certificate programs, the admissions process – from application to registration – as well as information on transfer pathways and financial aid. Two sessions are held each week, one on Tuesdays at 10:00AM and one on Thursdays at 5:00PM. Each live event (via Zoom) lasts about 25 minutes and is hosted by one of our Admissions Counselors who can also answer any questions you may have.
