College is a big committment on so many fronts, from financal commitments to changing priorities to make higher education possible. Grand Rapids Community College wants as many people as possible to have the opportunity to experience an college education. Today we have Tina Hoxie in studio with us.

GRCC says it is committed to keeping college affordable for students of all ages — high school graduates, people looking for career skills and adults returning to finish degrees or get new skills. The historically low increases are just one of the ways GRCC is working to keep college affordable. More than 1,600 high school students are taking classes free to them through early/middle college, dual and concurrent enrollment. And the GRCC Foundation last year provided more than $1.2 million in scholarships to help students.

Once students get to GRCC, the school is committed to supporting them so they can be successful. Their mission as a community college is to serve all. They meet students where they are and help them get to where they need to be. GRCC has small class sizes, individualized attention, multiple pathways to success and an excellent faculty.
