Chart the Course

What is Chart The Course?

Chart The Course is a GCU program for eligible first year students to help keep them on track for graduation in four years by offering them the opportunity to take a FREE course during the winter or summer terms. The course will fulfill your graduation requirements and can help boost your GPA and lighten your college credit load.

Who is eligible for CTC?

First year students whose transcript shows that they have fewer than 15 or 30 college credits that count toward graduation (depending on which semester they first enrolled). Research shows that completion of 15 college credits each semester is the best predictor of college graduation in four years. We want to help you meet that standard.

What’s the benefit?

Time and money! You will reduce the cost of additional college classes, including the dreaded 5th year. Other than books you pay nothing for this college course—a savings of $2,200.

How do students sign up?

Eligible students are sent emails from the Chart the Course Program Specialist throughout each semester notifying them they are eligible and providing instructions for how to register for classes.
