Earn College Credits While Still in High School
Imagine starting your freshman year of college with several courses already completed. You will be ahead of your peers and that much closer to obtaining your degree and your dream job. You will even save some money too!!
Some students, by the time they get to their Junior or Senior year in high school, have a strong desire to study a particular field. Often times they are ready for college-level coursework. Why not give them the opportunity to follow their passions early?
GLCC is located in Delta Township, just west of Lansing's capital. Any Mid-Michigan high school student wishing to earn college credits while in high school can apply.
The thought of starting college early can be a little daunting. However, some students really are ready for the challenge--and what better environment to start in than that of a Christian college where students are nurtured and encouraged in a small classroom setting?
