Congratulations on your acceptance to Glendale Community College! Please explore the resources below to ensure a smooth transition to GCC.
Get social! We also encourage you to connect with us on Instagram @GCC_ISO! We look forward to welcoming you to campus soon. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need assistance at any time.
Are you currently in the US and wish to study at Glendale? After you have been admitted, you will need to request that your school transfers your record to GCC. Please provide your school with our transfer form to begin this process. Next, sign up to take your placement tests at the Assessment Center. After you receive your results, stop by the office to meet with an academic counselor and prepare a Student Educational Plan (SEP). As an international student, you will have access to priority registration to help you enroll in classes before they fill up. Class sizes are limited so we encourage you to check your priority registration date on MyGCC and complete these steps at least two weeks in advance of this date.
For those students accepted to the summer intersession, your I-20 will be issued for the Fall term. For those students accepted to the winter intersession, your I-20 will be issued for the Spring term. You may still enroll in the summer or winter sessions “incidentally” without needing to enroll full time (12 units). You will receive your new I-20 at the start of the Fall or Spring academic term. You do not need an I-20 during this time, unless you plan on traveling outside of the US. Please inform ISO if this is the case so that a temporary “transfer pending” I-20 can be issued to you. You will still need to receive your final I-20 at the start of the term.
To qualify to transfer from your current school, your last date of attendance (or completion of OPT), cannot be more than 5 months before the start of our Fall or Spring terms. Please contact ISO if your last date of attendance/last date of OPT is more than 5 months from the start of the academic term to discuss your options.
