Applying to GCC: Get started at GCC - Five important steps to success!

  • Step 1: How to Apply
    The first step is to submit an official application for admission.  Click here to complete the online application (application fee is waived). Or print off and complete the paper application and mail or bring to: Office of Admissions, 1400 Tanyard Rd., Sewell, NJ 08080
  • Step 2: College Placement Test
    GCC requires every student to take a placement test to assess current skill levels in reading, writing and mathematics. Your test results are used for academic advising and program planning to help you get the most out of your college education. All freshmen are placed in classes based on their placement test results. Results of the writing, math and reading components of the test determine placement in either college-level or developmental courses.

  • Step 3: Official copy of your high school transcript or GED
    You will need to have your official high school transcript or GED sent to GCC or bring them with you if you do not have a college degree. Have your official transcript sent to: Office of Enrollment Services, Gloucester County College, 1400 Tanyard Road, Sewell, NJ 08080.
