Admissions Events

Want to know about Great Bay, attend an Admissions Event.

We would love to have you visit our campus, learn more about our programs, transfer opportunities and even how to begin the application process. At Great Bay Community College admissions appointments are not mandatory but we strongly encourage potential students to come and see first-hand how we are putting the community in community college.

Open House

We host 3 open houses every year. This is a great opportunity for students to meet the staff and faculty, learn more about the programs, speak to transfer partners, tour the campus and even have that application fee waived.
