Great Basin College enriches people's lives by providing student-centered, post-secondary education to rural Nevada. Educational, cultural, and related economic needs of the multicounty service area are met through programs of university transfer, applied science and technology, business and industry partnerships, developmental education, community service, and student support services in conjunction with certificates and associate and select baccalaureate degrees.
GBC is a comprehensive community college that provides educational opportunities to over 3,800 students across 86,500 square miles, in ten of Nevada's largest counties bordering five states. The main campus in Elko is home to an educational community that attracts students interested in a residential college experience. Satellite facilities are located in over a dozen communities across the college's service area.
As a GBC applicant, you are assigned a faculty advisor according to your major (and even if you've not yet selected a major). To learn who your advisor is, log into the MyGBC Self-Service Center. Then click the Student Center button. You'll see your advisor listed on the left of your Student Center page. See the screenshot below for the location of your advisor's name.
Click the Details link to learn your advisor's e-mail address. It is up to you to initiate contact with your advisor. If you want to change your advisor, contact the Admissions & Records Office or your local campus.
You are strongly encouraged to avail yourself of advisement. Your advisor will assist you with class selection to streamline your academic process. It's a good idea to contact your advisor before the enrollment period begins. Faculty return to campus before the beginning of fall instruction to be available to you.
You also have the resources of the Advising and Career Center at your disposal. If you are uncertain about what academic objective truly suits you, the center has assessment services to align your academic objectives with your aptitudes and preferences. Counselors at the center are available to assist you with any matters affecting your success at GBC.
The Student Retention Peer Mentor understands issues facing students and can assist you in finding the support and resources you need.
