Each student seeking an associate degree at the college is required to satisfactorily complete at least 15 hours in general education that provide the foundations in Language Arts/Communication, Social/Behavioral Sciences, Natural Sciences/Mathematics, and Humanities/Fine Arts. The purpose of the general education courses at GNTC is to provide students with a common, broad-based, well-rounded, collegiate level educational experience that ensures breadth of knowledge and adheres to a coherent rationale.
Each student completing a diploma program at the college is required to satisfactorily complete at least eight credit hours in diploma basic skills. For the diploma-seeking student, that course of study typically consists of an appropriate course in mathematics, English, and psychology. This requirement is based upon the belief that to be well-trained is not enough. Today's technician must also be competent in the use of written and spoken language, possess adequate computational skills, and have good interpersonal skills.
Students seeking certificates will complete a coherent grouping of courses taken from a state approved postsecondary standard curriculum. These certificates will provide students with a short-term program of study geared toward a specific occupational position.
