Returning Students

Welcome back to GRCC! If you are a student who has taken classes at Grand Rapids Community College before but it has been a while since you attended, below are steps to get re-admitted. If you have questions about any part of the process, please call the Admissions and Enrollment Center at (616) 234-3300 or email at

  • If you have taken classes within the last two years, your account should still be active. If you have any questions, or have forgotten your password to the Online Center or your student ID, please call our Admissions and Enrollment Center at (616) 234-3300.


Next Steps:

  • Once your account is reactivated, you can make an appointment to meet with an academic advisor who can assist you in selecting courses based on your assessment test scores and the requirements of your major. The GRCC catalog outlines these courses and the sequence you should follow.  Please know that if you have not attended within the last two years, you are now under a new catalog based on the term you returned to the college.
