Accepted Student Checklist

My Check Admissions Status shows I have been accepted to the college. What do I do next?

  1. Apply for Financial Aid.
    • If you have not already applied for financial aid, please go to the FAFSA web page and submit the application today. The GHC school code is: 009507. It can take 6 to 8 weeks to complete the financial aid process so don’t delay! For more information regarding filling out the FAFSA, click here.
    • If you have applied for financial aid, you need to check your record for any documents that are needed to complete your file and/or to review your award. You can access that information online through your SCORE account. Need help with that? Click here.
  2. LockSign and Submit a FERPA form to the Registrar’s Office at to allow authorized individuals access to your student records.
    • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), as amended, was designed to protect the privacy of educational records, to establish the rights of students to inspect and revise the educational records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the right to file complaints with The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act.
