GHC plans for mostly online classes in fall

This fall, Grays Harbor College will be offering a full schedule of classes while prioritizing the health and safety of its students and the community. Classes and services will be offered remotely utilizing online, Zoom, Canvas, YouTube, and other relevant technologies, with the exception of a few programs that require hands-on application.

“GHC is compassionate about the uncertainties facing our students, including the re-opening of public schools and opportunities for daycare, and has planned its Class Schedule with flexibility and safety in mind,” stated GHC President Ed Brewster.

According to Dr. Brewster: “Gov. Inslee has allowed our students to come to campus for the hands-on portion of their classes for some time now, provided our colleges follow strict safety protocols. So, we have strong experience keeping our students safe as we go into the fall. But that said, there will be some big changes. Most classes and service will remain remote. When individuals do come to campus, they will need to stay at least 6 feet apart from each other and wear masks. We will also be required to continue all the other safety protocols we’ve been practicing — like creating safety plans, deep cleaning classrooms; logging-in students, visitors and workers; providing hand-washing stations; and posting COVID safety signage around campus.”

Registration for fall is open now.

Returning students can view the class schedule at and enroll online through the MyGHC Student Portal.

New students or students who have been away for longer than one quarter can get started by visiting or by contacting an educational advisor, which can be done over Zoom or by phone (Zoom and/or phone virtual assistance at, or via email (

“Our educational advisers are ready to work with students to find the best fit for their unique needs,” Dr. Brewster explained. “At GHC, we believe that fall 2020 is an exceptional time to be taking classes. GHC is embracing the opportunity to provide students a quality education while helping them develop the technological and e-communication skills that are shaping our future. We invite everyone to join us.”
