This student handbook has been designed with your needs in mind. We asked current and previous Gavilan College students what issues they would like to have addressed. The sections throughout this handbook are based upon actual questions and comments from students.
We want you to view this handbook as a "success" guide for Gavilan College. Used in partnership with the college catalog, this guide will increase your knowledge of College resources.
The College Catalog can be seen as your “student bible.” This book contains important information about student rights, matriculation and admissions requirements, student support services and instructional support, college policies and procedures, academic information, general education, vocational and transfer programs, course descriptions, student activities, information in Spanish, maps of our different campuses, and full-time faculty and administrator contact information.
