Academic Transfer degrees
- This College is a great place to start the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program. You can earn a two-year Associate degree suitable for transfer to any public four-year school in Washington State or one tailored to the transfer school of your choice. For some programs, you can even complete your bachelor's degree right here on the GHC Campus.

Our Workforce Training programs can prepare you to enter the world of work, or upgrade your job skills, after just one or two years. In some cases, the training time is even shorter. And, depending on the program, you can earn a college degree, a certificate, or both.

Congratulations to GHC’s All-WA Academic Team Members!

A native of Japan, Naoto Iwashita, 35, immigrated in July 2013, enrolling as a Pre-Med student at GHC. He plans a career as a primary care physician for under-served populations, after earning a Bachelor of Science transfer degree. At GHC, he is a peer tutor, serves as PTK treasurer and belongs to the Japanese Media Club. He also volunteers at GH Community Hospital and will soon earn his CNA license to give him further medical experience. He has a 3.92 grade-point average.


With two small children, Camai Catlin, 28, looks for volunteer projects for her family; right now, they help out together at PAWS, the animal shelter. She is a Nursing major at GHC, planning to earn her BSN, and to eventually become a nurse practitioner. She also serves as president-elect of the Student Nurses Association, is a member of PTK and a work-study student in the Human Resources office. But she most enjoys being a reading volunteer at her son’s school. She has a grade-point average of 4.0.

Naoto and Camai met GHC Trustees last week for lunch. This week, they will attend an Olympia reception in their honor with Gov. Inslee and legislators. Being an All-WA Academic Team member will mean additional scholarships from KeyBank and others.
