Welcome to the Gavilan College
Student Community!

cover of student handbook

We are very pleased that you have made Gavilan your "College of Choice" for your higher education experience.

As a student, you will not only have much to learn from the courses you take and the field of study you are pursuing, but also about how be successful in the college setting.

This handbook is designed to help you understand the rules, policies, procedures and information that students find helpful while attending Gavilan. As a student, you have many rights and privileges. You also assume the responsibility to learn about the college environment and to respect other students in this responsibility.

Whether you find yourself with a question about grading, where to go if you are feeling under served, or what to do in a situation where you are having issues with a fellow student, we hope that this resource, along with the college catalog, will guide you in what to do next.

I wish you tremendous success with your academic pursuits and invite you to engage in the rich environment we have created for you here at Gavilan outside of the classroom.
