The design for the new website is ready. You can

This design has been modified and

we move through the migration process.
In the meantime, we would like to recommend that
those of you who are responsible for content on any Grossmont
College webpage to do the following.
Review your existing content for
accuracy and update as needed.
Identify content that should be
