Merit Nomination Form

GCC is filled with students who do amazing things above and beyond their typical responsibilities.  Merit strives to recognize those students and build an online co-curricular transcript that can be showcased to future employers as they leave GCC.

We encourage our faculty and staff members to nominate students (one or more than one!) to earn a Merit Achievement for recent accomplishments inside and outside of the classroom.

Students are granted a profile upon receiving their first achievement. Once a student claims his profile, he can customize it with a photo, brief bio, campus activities (sports teams, clubs, honor societies, etc), and prior work experiences.
