Launch U


Launch U is a specialized early college program. Students can earn their high school diploma and an associate's degree from GRCC, in just one year beyond high school. Or students can graduate in their 12th grade year with an industry recognized certificate.

Launch U is designed to support students in their career and education goals, while saving time and money. In fact, students earn 60 college credits (FREE) which can transfer to a 4-year college if they choose to pursue another degree after completing the program.

To be eligible to apply to Launch U, students must: 

  • Be a current 9th-grade student in a public or charter school in Kent County (for the General Associate or Engineering & Mechanical Design programs)
  • Be enrolled at KCTC (for Networking & Cyber Security or Hospitality & Culinary)
