Butte College REG TO GO

Butte College Registration to Go (REG TO GO) is a joint program between Gridley High School and Butte College. In this program, students planning on attending Butte College in the Fall semester following their senior year will attend 3 events during their senior year that are pre-scheduled. These events are coordinated with Butte College and the GHS counseling offices. After students complete the three events, they will be completely registered for Butte College prior to the end of their senior year.
