Open Registration Day creates opportunity for students to lock in GRCC classes for the next three semesters


Grand Rapids Community College students can reserve spots in classes for the upcoming summer, fall, and winter semesters starting on Open Registration Day, Monday, March 21.

“Open Registration Day is the best chance for students to ensure they get the best selection of courses and plan ahead through next year,” said Kristi Welling, GRCC’s associate director of Enrollment Services. “GRCC is proud to offer courses in a variety of times and formats, aimed at helping students schedule around home and work responsibilities. This registration period allows people to do long-term planning, and have the peace of mind knowing they have a seat in the classes they want, in the formats they want.”

Starting today, classes will be open for enrollment for the Summer 2022 semester, the Fall 2022 semester, and the Winter 2023 semester.

The summer semester is an opportunity for many students to keep on track to graduate, taking one or two courses and building momentum.

Summer also is popular with students attending four-year colleges and universities. They can attend as a guest student, taking easily transferable classes at GRCC’s affordable tuition.

The long-term planning is helpful for students using tuition-free programs, such as the Grand Rapids Promise, Michigan Reconnect and Futures for Frontliners.
