Greenfield Community College is located in the beautiful and historic Pioneer Valley of western Massachusetts, between the foothills of the Berkshire Mountains and the fertile farmland of the Connecticut River watershed.
GCC is the smallest of the 15 community colleges in the Massachusetts higher education system, known for the caring and supportive attitude of the faculty and staff, and for the broad support it enjoys from the surrounding community. We are fully accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, and we work closely with bachelor degree granting colleges of the Massachusetts public higher education system, including the University of Massachusetts, and with private colleges and universities, which enables us to offer diverse transfer opportunities to our students.
The career programs offered by the College prepare our students to enter the work force or update their skills, while credit-free workshops and seminars are offered for personal enrichment.
Day, evening and weekend classes are offered so that students who need a flexible academic schedule can be served. With over 60 programs and certificates and extensive student support services (like transfer counseling, disability accommodations and tutoring) GCC is the place for quality, affordable higher education in the Pioneer Valley.
Today, the annual fall enrollment of the College exceeds 3,000 students.
