The Academic and Technical divisions of GSCC offer programs leading to degrees and certificates. The Academic Division also prepares students planning to transfer to four-year institutions in quest of baccalaureate degrees in areas of study for which Gadsden State does not grant degrees. The College will assign an advisor in the designated area of study for each student. Advisor information appears under each program of study. Students should consider the following notices while planning courses within the selected program of study:
- The statements in this catalog and student handbook are informational only; they are NOT the basis of a contract between the student and the College. Although Gadsden State will try to do what this book says that it will do and will make every effort to let the student know about any changes, the College has the right to change any such provision without notifying the student individually. If it becomes necessary for Gadsden State to eliminate a program, the College may substitute a limited number of courses in order for the student to complete that program.
- Because program requirements at one four-year college or university often differ from those at another, a student who intends to pursue a four-year degree should refer to the requirements of the transfer institution to ensure that the courses taken at Gadsden State are applicable toward the degree sought.
- Gadsden State may grant, but is NOT required to do so, up to twenty (20) semester hours of credit to a student in a technical program for prior study-related work and/or educational experiences. Such credit is posted to the student’s transcript at the time that approved paperwork is submitted from the Office of the Dean of Technical Education and Workforce Development.
