      • I am a past student at GRCC and am interested in doing an on-line course this summer. My question is: What steps do I need to take to get to the point where I can register for the class I want?  I’m not sure where to start -or who I should be contacting.
      • Hi I was wondering how the online courses actually work. I am enrolled for Child Psychology online for this summer starting next month and I was just wondering if there was an online portal I need to know about or if the teacher will email the class or anything.
