Does it cost extra to be a member of Grogan College?
No! Grogan College has no membership fees or additional charges and no on-campus housing is more affordable than Grogan Residence Hall.
Is Grogan College separate from UNCG?
No! Grogan is a part of UNCG. It is a program established by UNCG to help first-year students achieve personally and academically while making a successful transition to college. At Grogan you will meet other UNCG students who share your career goal or major, connect with UNCG professors, and work on important study and professional skills and leadership development, all of which will enhance your success at UNCG and beyond As a UNCG program, all of the courses, professors and credits are from UNCG.
Are there minimum academic requirements for admission to Grogan College?
No! Grogan accepts all traditional first-year students on a first-come, first-serve basis. While a few of our Communities (Music and Nursing) are restricted by major; most serve a wide group of majors, professions or interests.
Do Grogan College courses “count”?
Yes! The academic course(s) associated with your Learning Community will either meet requirements for your specific major or they will meet General Education requirements. Sometimes the same course will do both! Even your one-credit GRC 101 counts toward the total number of credits needed for graduation.
What is a General Education course and why do I need them?
At UNCG, our General Education Program is designed to provide students with the “foundational knowledge, skills, and values necessary to be critical and creative thinkers, ethical decision-makers, effective communicators, and collaborative and engaged global citizens.” In addition, it “empowers our students to thrive as lifelong learners who lead personally fulfilling lives.”* The Gen Ed courses included in your LC have been chosen to compliment your major or career interests.
