Learning Center Resources

The Learning Center offers a variety of resources to meet the needs of all GCC students. We have anatomic and veterinary models, time management resources, and textbooks for you to use in D209, as well as a quiet study space, computers, and a printer. Furthermore, our YouTube channel is available whenever you need it!

Writing Assistance

If you would like your paper looked at and commented upon by a writing tutor but you don’t have time for an appointment, you can email your paper to tutoring@hw-navi.com (from your GCC account). Tutors are not editors or proofreaders, but they can help identify patterns or mistakes you make in your writing.
