Catalog Disclaimer

Catalog Disclaimer Information

The Garden City Community College catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the information and convenience of students. The College reserves the right to change or withdraw courses, to change the fees, rules and calendar for admissions, registration, instruction, and graduation, and to change other regulations affecting the student body, at any time. The College reserves the right to change policies or revise curricula as necessary. If the College decides to terminate a degree or certificate program, students enrolled in that program are provided written notice.

Student Responsibility for Catalog

Each student is responsible for knowing the information printed in this Catalog. Failure to read these regulations will not be considered an excuse for noncompliance. Please check the GCCC Student Handbook for additional information. The Student Handbook places full responsibility on the student for registering for appropriate courses and for fulfilling all requirements for a certificate or degree set forth in this catalog, as amended from time to time. The program pathways outlined in the catalog are the best transfer and workforce pathways for students. The pathways do not guarantee transfer of credit. Students should work with their advisors at GCCC, as well as advisors at transfer institutions, to determine the best plan for course selection. No agent or employee of the College has the authority to warrant graduation, the attainment of any type of license, or career goal.

The College does not accept any responsibility for delays in graduation or attainment of career goals resulting from errors in registration, cancelled courses, time schedule changes, changes in degree and certificate requirements, or similar or related changes, or for errors resulting from consultation with or reliance upon any information acquired from any college employee. Advisors’ signatures on pre-registration, drop-add forms do not necessarily indicate agreement with or approval of the student’s choice of courses, nor may they be construed in any way as a guarantee that the student’s choice of courses is sufficient for graduation or attainment of any career goal.
