"I took History and Math my senior year of high school in Ely, and I wish I would have taken more. Not only did the classes prepare me for college, but I saved money. After graduation, I spent two years at GBC in Ely, and now I attend classes in Elko, finishing my Bachelor of Science in Biological Sciences. GBC worked for me and it can work for you too."

- Mercedes Hartman Ely, NV White Pine High School Class of 2014

Great Basin College offers high school students the opportunity to jump start college while completing high school. Academically, the senior year is not the time to “hibernate”, research supports that students completing at least six college credits while in high school are significantly more likely to graduate from college.

GBC offers course delivery options including live classroom, IAV, online or hybrid. Dual enrollment courses, regardless of delivery mode, are 50% of regular registration and technology fees.
