Germanna Community College, with campus branches in Culpeper, Locust Grove, and Fredericksburg, Virginia, is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Commission to award Associate’s degrees. Established in 1970, GCC is a member of the 23-college consortium known collectively as the Virginia Community College System. This school gets its name from an early settlement of German miners in the area at Germanna Ford, by the Rapidan River. The Locust Grove campus sits atop 100 forested acres by the Rapidan River, and features labs, a wellness center, offices, a library, classrooms, and a student lounge and business office. The Fredericksburg campus, which currently includes labs, a library, lounge, bookstore, classrooms, and offices, is planning for the future addition of playing fields, jogging paths, tennis courts, and picnic areas.


Students may pursue a number of degrees and certificates, including the Associate of Arts and Sciences, the Associate of Applied Science, the Associate of Science, and Career Studies Certificates.

Most Popular Fields of Study


Admission is not just reserved for people in possession of a high school diploma or equivalent degree from an accredited institution, but also available to those wishing to better themselves through the varied programs of study. Applications are often reviewed within 48-72 hours of submission.

Students wishing to complete a degree or certificate program on either a full-time or part-time basis are known as curricular students. In order to be admitted as a curricular student, you must submit a completed College Application for Admission, an official high school or GED transcript and transcripts for all colleges and post-secondary schools attended, and, for those students seeking in-state tuition, an Application for Virginia Domicile.

Students who are not seeking to take classes for credit to be applied towards a degree or certificate are known as noncurricular students. In order to be admitted as a noncurricular student, you must submit a completed College Application for Admission and a completed Application for Virginia Domicile, if seeking in-state tuition.

Financial Aid

There are several different types of financial aid available; these include grants, loans, and work-study programs.

Common grants include Federal Pell Grants, College Scholarship Assistance Program grants, Virginia Guaranteed Assistance Program grants, Academic Competitiveness Grants, Higher Education Teacher Assistance Program grants, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Part-Time Tuition Assistance Program grants, and Commonwealth Awards.

As Germanna does not participate in Federal Stafford or PLUS Loan programs, students usually seek alternative, private student loans.

The GCC Work Program provides an alternative to grants and loans, and students undertake various work positions at the school to help fund their education. The Federal Work-Study program, available for students enrolled in at least 6 credits per semester, employs students to help defray the costs of attending.
