The community college is a dynamic institution, constantly changing, constantly adjusting, constantly in flux. The goal: to change with the needs and demands of its constituents (the students, the academic community, the wider community). The result: In a catalog designed for a “one year shelf life,” much of the information, while accurate at the time of printing, will change. Glen Oaks Community College reserves the unrestricted right to make changes in any policies, procedures, course offerings, educational programs, class schedules, tuition/fees, or personnel, at any time, without notice. This catalog is published for general information purposes only and does not constitute or establish a contract of any kind between the college and a student or prospective student. The college reserves the privilege to change, without notice, any information in this catalog.

Usage Period and Policies:

This catalog is official, beginning with the fall semester 2016, for the 2016-2017 academic year or until superseded by a more recent edition. See Catalog in Effect for Graduation Requirements.
