what to expect

What motivates a student to choose online courses is the flexibility. Most online students are working adults that lead busy lives. That's why we've designed online courses that can fit into your schedule. For first time online students, the idea of learning online may seem overwhelming. At Gulf Coast State College, you can be assured that you are not going to be left to navigate this experience on your own. Online classes at GCSC are taught by a caring  faculty of experts that want to see you succeed. It is our goal to make learning online simple to manage and engaging.
