Enrollment Procedures for Returning Students

You are a returning student if you have previously taken credited classes and have not attended for one quarter or more. We will be glad to welcome you back!

Apply for Admission

You can complete the free application for admission at the GHC Welcome Center or online.

Apply for Financial Aid

(Skip this step if you will not be requesting financial assistance)

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is available online. If you plan on applying for financial aid, you must complete the FAFSA. If you need assistance with your FAFSA, please visit the Welcome Center or contact financial aid directly at 360-538-4081.

Additional information about the different types of financial aid is available on the Financial Aid page.

Entry Advising & Registration

You'll be advised and registered for classes through our Entry Advising Process. For more information and to schedule your appointment, please visit the Student Support Center in the 100 Building on GHC's Main Campus or call us at 360-538-4099.

Please note: Advising and Registration for returning students will depend on how early you re-apply for admissions.  You will receive a letter in the mail with details on how to register. Students applying early enough (at least four weeks before advising and registration for currently enrolled students) will be able to advise and register with currently enrolled students. If you apply after currently enrolled students are notified of the advising and registration process, you will receive a letter with details on re-entry advising through the Student Support Center.

Pay for College

Paying your tuition & fees can be done by phone, online, or in-person at the Cashier's window in the 100 building.
