Continue Your Education At CGCC After Dual Enrollment
CGCC offers many opportunities to recent high school graduates that can help you continue on your academic path, from new student orientations to help you get to know the college, to scholarships that can pay for up to two full years of classes. Check out the links below to find out about all of the resources we offer at Chandler-Gilbert Community College.
Honors Program – dual enrollment students are already prepared to function at a high academic level, and the Honors Program gives them an opportunity to continue striving for academic excellence. Honors students can become members of the Phi Theta Kappa honors fraternity, attend exclusive honors events and activities, and apply for scholarships that can pay for up to two full years of tuition. Eligibility for the scholarship isn’t just determined by class ranking, but can also be awarded by achieving a high enough score on placement tests.
Academic Programs – CGCC offers a variety of majors and certificates to students. You can go for an Associate’s Degree in such fields as biology, English, and business, or even get a specialized degree from our Nursing or Aviation and Aeronautics programs. We also offer the Arizona General Education Curriculum (AGEC) certificate, which covers lower-division general education requirements for students planning on transferring to any public community college or university in Arizona. Even better, the AGEC certificate usually transfers as a block without any loss of credit!
Campus Tours – while dual enrollment students have received college credit through CGCC, many may not have stepped foot on the college grounds. By signing up for a guided campus tour, you’ll become acquainted with the layout of our campus and have someone to answer your questions along the way.
New Student Orientation – this orientation is mandatory for new students, and introduces them not only to the layout of the campus, but introduces them to many of the services available to them as a CGCC student. You’ll have the chance to meet the staff from many departments who will be there to support you in all of your academic goals.
Explore Careers – our Career Services are there to help you with all of your job-related needs. With their help, you can apply for internships, refine your resume, or connect your major to a career once you graduate.
Funding Your Education – if you need assistance paying for your classes, CGCC’s Financial Aid department is available to let you know about available options. They can help you apply for federal financial aid and grants, as well as let you know what kinds of scholarships may be available to you.
