GCSC will close at 5:00 PM Today, October 8
and Will Stay Closed on Tues. & Wed., October 9 & 10.
A decision about Thurs. will be made after the storm has passed
and we can assess our campuses.

Corporate College will always be committed to serving Northwest Florida and global visitors from around the world. As part of the college, the determination to serve is part of the original philosophy of the administration and faculty of Gulf Coast State College.

Continuing Education courses do not offer college credit, but in some cases, students can earn continuing education units, certification, or proof of class completion to meet personal or professional requirements without being a college-enrolled student.
