Alumni PrOFile Karen Knight ’87 Outdoor instructor When Karen Knight came to GCC, she already held a B.S. degree in Therapeutic & Outdoor Recreation from Springfield College. While a student there, she heard a speaker talk about GCC’s Outdoor Leadership Program and it was compelling enough to have Karen later enroll in the program and receive her OLP certificate from GCC in 1987. From there, she worked for a bike touring company in New Hampshire, then as a sea kayak instructor in Maine. That evolved into an interest in freestyle canoeing; she was a 5-time national champion in that sport until her retirement from competition. The impressive activities of this alum caught the attention of GCC and Karen was invited back to teach sea kayaking and adaptive skiing in the OLP. Karen now lives in Texas and travels throughout North America teaching/guiding canoeing and kayaking. After 20 years of working in the outdoor industry, she wouldn’t change a thing.
We make every effort to offer our classes as indicated in this Course Guide. Occasionally, there are changes beyond our control. For up-to-date information on all courses, visit our website: www.gcc.mass.edu.

General information–Credit ADmiSSiOn inFOrmATiOn Admission requirements Admission to a degree or certificate program requires a high school diploma, a G.E.D., or successfully passing a federally approved Ability-toBenefit Test. We do not require entrance examinations such as SATs or ACTs. The college requires a placement test of anyone who has not completed previous college work in selected English composition or mathematics courses. Health Occupations programs hold monthly informational meetings to describe entrance requirements to the RN, LPN, Massage Therapy, and Paramedic programs. All meetings are held at the Downtown Center, 270 Main Street, with the exception of the LPN, which are held at the VA Medical Center in Leeds. Dates can be found at www.gcc.mass.edu/academics/healthocc/schedule.html Several other academic programs limit their enrollment or have different requirements. If you have questions, ask one of our admission representatives.
matriculation Matriculation means formal admission into a degree or certificate program. Only matriculated students are eligible to be considered for financial aid and graduation. To matriculate: 1. Call us (413-775-1801) or stop by for an admission application. Return the completed application to the Office of Admission, N219, Main Building, Main Campus.

Students may be exempt from skills assessment if: • they have completed the assessment process at GCC within the last year; • they have successfully completed an appropriate course in English composition and/or mathematics at another college (a math course must have been within the last five years);
they are taking courses on an audit basis and not for credit.

Financial aid Many of the students attending Greenfield Community College receive financial aid. Financial aid funds originate from federal, state, institutional, private, and community resources. Those resources carry certain requirements and obligations on the part of the college and the students. Your particular academic program and enrollment status may have an impact on your financial aid award, such as full-time vs. part-time or repeated courses. Only matriculated students are eligible for federal and state financial aid. Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid so we may determine your eligibility. You may wish to review some of the local outside scholarship opportunities listed on the GCC Financial Aid web site http://www.gcc.mass.edu/media/docs/finaid/ outsidescholarships.pdf. Please note: Financial aid awards do not necessarily cover all college tuition, fees, and other costs associated with attending college. In addition, students are advised to have a budget plan to ensure that they have sufficient funds pending receipt of their financial aid award at mid-semester.

An individual must be able to prove Massachusetts residency for six continuous months and intent to remain in the state. For further details, contact Enrollment Services at (413) 775-1801. To apply for in-state residency complete the In-State Tuition Eligibility Form on page 50. neBHe: Through the New England Board of Higher education (NEBHE), Massachusetts participates in the Regional Student Program (RSP) which enables students from one New England state to attend public colleges or universities in another New England state at tuition rates below

To qualify, a student must be a resident of one of the five other New England states and be pursuing a degree or certificate program not offered at a two-year community college in their home state or offered at a Massachusetts Community College closer to their home.

Tuition Waivers The College requires that tuition waivers be submitted by the due date of the bill if you are eligible for one at that time. Proof of eligibility must be provided. No refunds will be made if you fail to submit the proper waiver in a timely manner. Generally, fees cannot be waived, except for senior citizens and certain College employees. Special program fees cannot be waived. Students registering using a tuition waiver may be admitted to the course on a “space available” basis.
Senior Citizen Waivers Credit classes are generally available at no cost to senior citizens (over 60 years of age) who are Massachusetts residents and have not yet earned a bachelor's degree. (This policy excludes books and some additional fees.) Senior citizens who are Massachusetts residents who have already earned a bachelor's degree are generally eligible to enroll in courses and have most of the course fees waived. Enrollment as a senior citizen in courses is on a "space-available" basis. Since the College cannot determine available seating until after the posted registration period, senior citizens must register for classes on or after the day of the first scheduled meeting. Senior citizens must show proof of eligibility and submit the required paperwork each semester. To determine if there is space in a particular class, seniors should call (413) 775-1801 on the day it is scheduled to meet first.

cific class begins), a full refund of tuition and fees, less the $20 registration fee, will be issued. The registration fee is an administrative fee and is nonrefundable.

nurSinG The Associate Degree Nursing Program prepares you for a career as a nurse, providing patient care for adults and children in varied health care settings. You will be required to take a combination of liberal arts and clinical nursing courses in sequence over four semesters. Some students prefer to complete the program over a longer period of time. Licensed practical nurses have full responsibility for the quality of the health care they provide to patients. The LPN participates in direct nursing care including routine patient care, giving medications, administering treatments of all types, assisting with diagnostic procedures and observing and reporting patient symptoms. The 40-week long program involves at least 30 hours a week of classes, laboratory and clinical practice. At this time, employment opportunities are excellent with graduates of the GCC program experiencing 100 percent employment. A special admission process is required for both programs. Information meetings are held during the year. The schedule of meetings and additional information can be found at www.gcc.mass.edu/programs/healthoccupations/, orÂ call the information line at (413) 775-1620 and request an Inquiry Packet.
