Academic Foundations Program (AFP)

Academic Foundations Program

The Academic Foundations Program (AFP) helps students learn how to learn in a college environment. Students in the AFP program have been identified by GRCC testing as having the potential to be successful in college and beyond, yet they need further work with reading, writing, and mathematics to be fully college ready. AFP gives under-prepared students the competitive edge they need to handle hard classes and earn their degree. The AFP program offers classes in English, mathematics, reading, and adjustment to college.
