Registration Process Details:

Make sure you have printed off the Package and Checklist for the program you are registering for (you can find this information at the links below for each program.) The package will go over the requirements for the program and the checklist is a list of the requirements to bring on the first day of class.

Also print a Information Package Occupational Healthcare Overview . This package will (cover) Dress Code Policy,(you are required to wear your uniforms on the first day of class), Tardiness, Absence Policy, for all Healthcare programs. This information can be printed out at any campus.

To register and pay for a class look over the Occupational Healthcare Schedules.

Once you have found the class you want you are looking for a button that says Register. It should be at the far right of the class option you desire. If you cannot see the register option then use your scroll bar to slide the screen over to see the entire menu.

After you complete the registration form you will be taken to a screen where you can pay. The student is enrolled in the program after payment has been received.

If you elect not to pay online you can go to any VGCC campus to receive a package of information, register, and pay for the course.

On the first day, bring your package to class with all documents in your folder for the Instructor to checkoff. Remember, you must wear your uniform on the First Day of Class.
