Pre-arrival Registration for New Academic Students

Applicants who have demonstrated proof of academic-level English proficiency can register for academic classes before they arrive on campus. This gives them a jump start on getting the classes they need to have a successful start their first quarter.

For your students who have not demonstrated English proficiency as part of the admission process, please check with them to see if they have taken or plan to take TOEFL, IELTS or any of the accepted proof of proficiency as listed on our web site. As soon as we receive proof of English proficiency, new students can get registered for academic classes they need to have a successful start their first quarter.

Visa Interview Delays – GRCC to provide SEVIS Number at Time of Admission

We are aware of significant delays in scheduling visa interviews. In China, for example, it is about a two month wait for visa interviews. One thing GRCC can do to assist is to scan and send the admission letter and the student’s SEVIS number and send both via email as soon as the student is admitted. This will allow your students to apply for a visa and set a student visa appointment with the US consulate. The original admission letter and I-20 will be sent via Express Mail as usual. Please request this through our admission officer at international@greenriver.edu.
