Steven C. Ender, Ed.D.

President, Grand Rapids Community College

Welcome to Grand Rapids Community College! I am very proud you have chosen GRCC as your college–your place to succeed! I’ve been President for over a year now, and I have had the opportunity to share the GRCC story of success with many people in our community. My favorite response from community members during these conversations is, “Really? I didn’t know that!” The comment, and enthusiasm, underscores the importance of sharing what makes GRCC distinctive and unique. When I first arrived, I learned that we have over 30,000 students who are taking classes and obtaining certificates through GRCC programs and partnerships, though  we were turning students away due to lack of space. We have since purchased property and leased new space to allow for the growth and diverse needs of our students. The opening of our Fulton Street campus and renovations through our GRCC Works…Ask Anyone! capital campaign are opening doors that will lead to your success.    Our six campuses on the lakeshore, and our satellite sites in Grandville, Rockford, and Byron Center bring our expert faculty to your communities. Our  Tassell M-TEC center, partners with Michigan Works!, and our Learning Corners give us the opportunity to provide hands on learning for very specific goals and careers. We are also very proud of our new Michigan Job Training partnerships that bring GRCC to employers to train and allow for hiring of new skilled labor in our community. From honors programs, to biology, to criminal justice, to GED prep, and even wind training and zero-energy homebuilding–we have something for everyone at GRCC. You can get the education and training for the career you are dreaming of. Take the time to join a group or student activity.  Become an active fan at GRCC’s nationally ranked athletic events, taste our award winning culinary cuisine, or volunteer in your community through one of our many service learning initiatives. It’s all a part of the GRCC experience. Thank you for choosing GRCC. If there is anything I can do to help you succeed please let me know.  I look forward to seeing you on campus and in our community.


Knowing students juggle busy schedules, we include a personal daily planner for the 2010-2011 academic year to help you manage your time on a daily basis. Important GRCC dates and information are noted for you.

About THe the college College

Grand Rapids Community College prides itself on giving you the education you need in an environment designed for learning. Since 1914, when GRCC began with 49 students, we have continuously improved –always staying in step with the needs of the times. Today, we have over 17,000 degree-seeking students in over 1,000 liberal arts and workforce courses. Another 13,000 students are learning through our Continuing Education and Professional Development workshops, training classes and seminars. Our small class size makes it possible to know your professors; our many student services can help you overcome barriers to getting the education you need. We have pre-college courses, an honors program and everything in between. Our downtown campus includes a theatre, library, preschool, science center, fieldhouse, technology center and many classrooms and lab facilities. We have recently expanded eastward into the former Davenport University campus. GRCC also has two Michigan Technical Education Centers (M-TECs), plus two neighborhood Learning Corners on the west and east sides of Grand Rapids. We also have several other facilities in Kent and Ottawa counties, including sites on the Lakeshore, that allow us to meet ever-increasing demand from West Michigan students. Student services, which we know can increase your chances of success, include financial assistance, career and personal counseling, tutoring and disability support among others. Student Life offers many leadership opportunities through student organizations. We have nationally and internationally recognized staff and faculty ready to help you reach your potential. Our award winning programs are designed to help you plan and meet your goals. When you have finished your work here, your credits will easily transfer to other colleges and universities, or you’ll be well-prepared to step directly into the workplace. Choose the courses, campus involvement and support options you need to meet your goals.

Inclement Weather Procedure Grand Rapids Community College rarely closes the downtown campus. When GRCC closes due to inclement weather, the campus will be closed for everyone for the entire day. If GRCC cancels classes, the decision to close will be reported to the TV/radio stations no later than 6:00 a.m. Information will also be posted on GRCC’s website at grcc.edu. When local school districts cancel classes based on weather conditions in their areas, there may be some confusion on the part of the students and faculty. A local school district closing does not mean a GRCC main campus closing. Weekend closing, Saturday and Sunday classes, will also be announced on the TV/radio. For Saturday and Sunday classes, cancellations will be reported to the TV/radio stations no later than 6:00 a.m. The Campus Police office will also have this information and can be reached at (616) 234-4010 by 7:00 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Lakeshore Campus Inclement Weather Policy Lakeshore Campus facilities are not tied to the main campus for inclement weather closings. In addition, college courses at the Holland Careerline Tech Center, West Ottawa High School and Grand Valley’s Meijer Campus are not tied to their organizations inclement weather closings. Please also be aware that if you see “Patrick A. Thompson M-TEC” closing under Ottawa County that it is not GRCC. That closing is associated with the OAISD. If there is a closing it will be posted as a GRCC Lakeshore Campus closing under Ottawa County.

Call (616) 234-4983 or E-Mail studentcongress@grcc.edu for information

Failure to do so will prevent you from entering or exiting the ramp again. ››Do NOT let other cars in on your RaiderCard. It is against card policy and you will not be able to exit the ramp.

College Policies

Academic Policies, Procedures and Regulations Academic Policies Academic Standing All students are required to make satisfactory academic progress. Satisfactory academic progress is reviewed at the end of each semester/session of enrollment after a student has attempted at least 12 (cumulative) credit hours at GRCC. This policy applies to all credit students at GRCC regardless of degree status (personal interest, non-degree and degree), program of study and financial aid status (recipients and non-recipients). Students in specific programs (both academic and support programs) at GRCC and students receiving financial aid and/or veteran’s benefits must also meet the specific academic requirements that determine continuation for these programs. Students who fail to meet the standards for Academic Progress will be placed on Academic Probation or Suspension. For more information about Academic Probation or Suspension see grcc.edu/ academicstanding. Once a GRCC student has attempted 12 credit hours, he/she must maintain a cumulative grade point average of not less than the following: Credit Hours Attempted . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Class Attendance Rules* The faculty and administration of Grand Rapids Community College believe that regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for the education of every student. We also recognize that circumstances sometimes prevent students from attending classes; however, the College administration sees excessive absenteeism as a very serious matter. Specific consequences of such absences are determined by individual instructors, departments and Schools. The following rules, however, do apply across the College: 1. All instructors must inform students, in writing, in each class that they teach, of the exact attendance requirements and the consequences of not meeting them. Such notice should be delivered at the first meeting of each class. 2. Students should make arrangements with their instructors for making up missed class work in advance of an absence whenever it is possible to do so. 3. The College faculty and administration expect that individual faculty members will recognize that athletic events, class trips, trips abroad, student organization activities and the like are a necessary and desirable part of life at GRCC and that all faculty members will extend to each other the professional courtesy of permitting students to miss their classes as these activities dictate. Students must understand, nevertheless, that they are responsible for all class work missed under such circumstances. 4. The College makes no distinction between “excused” and “unexcused” absences. If students are not present in a class in which they are enrolled, they are simply absent, regardless of the reason. *Currently under review. See the Website for most up-to-date attendance rules.

Grade Reports Grade reports are available to the student at the end of each semester and at the end of the Summer session and are accessible through the website: grcc.edu. Students needing assistance accessing their grades online may contact the Student Technology Help Desk. Student Records–Office of the Registrar will mail grades upon request. Transcripts and diplomas will not be distributed to students who have unpaid financial obligations to the College.

Withdrawal Process (W, WP, WF or NS Grade) 158

Students may drop a class and receive a “W” until the date of 70% of class completion, as noted on the instructor’s class roster. Students must initiate all drops using “My Student Center” or in person at the Enrollment Center.


College Policies

Academic Policies, Procedures and Regulations Instructors may assign a NS grade after 10% of class completion or assign WP or WF grades after 70% of class completion. Instructors may not assign a “W” as a grade. Students will not be able to initiate a drop (W) and receive a “W” during the final 30% of the class; they will receive, based upon graded and missed work, the grade they have earned (A, B, C, D, E, WP, WF, NS). There is no penalty to the student receiving a WP, WF or NS in the Grand Rapids Community College grading system. Transfer institutions may have policies governing the impact of W, WP, WF or NS grades at their institutions.

Student Rights, Responsibilities and Conduct Policy on Disability Support Services GRCC provides academic support services to students who qualify for support through the Disability Support Services office. Academic support services are defined as services relating to instruction, learning and the accessibility of College resources. Counseling and advising, tutoring, testing assistance, note taking, interpreting and parking are examples of academic support services. The College does not provide personal care services relating to a student’s individual needs of feeding, dressing, personal hygiene and/or medical concerns. Arrangements for personal care services are the responsibility of the student. Persons who are sponsored by an agency, e.g., Michigan Rehabilitation Services, should inquire about finding personal care services through the agency. (See Regulation 35.135 of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.)

Notification To Students of Rights Under FERPA The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their educational records. They are: ›› The right to inspect and review the student’s education records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access. Students should submit to the Registrar written requests that identify the record(s) they wish to inspect. The College will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the College official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed. ›› The right to request the amendment of the student’s education record that the student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Students may ask the College to amend a record that they believe is inaccurate or misleading. The student should write the College official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record he or she wants changed and specify why it is inaccurate or misleading. If the College decides not to amend the record as requested by the student, the College will notify the student of the decision and advise the student of his or her right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing. ›› The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agency); a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility as determined by the Provost/Executive Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs. ›› The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Grand Rapids Community College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office–U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20202-4605
