Academic/University Parallel Programs
Transferring to a university after Gulf Coast? Consider this: Students who complete their first two years of coursework at Gulf Coast and then transfer to a four-year institution have equal or, in many cases, higher grade point averages than students who transfer from other community colleges or who start their education at that four-year institution. A lot of words to say, “Community college is the best place to start.” Here’s another fact: Three out of four students enroll at Gulf Coast with the plan to move on to four-year institutions after they earn an associate’s degree.
