Take Advantage of Early Registration for Winter Quarter Academic Classes

Green River, like most colleges in the US, is experiencing high enrollment. It is more important than ever that international students take advantage of the opportunity to register as early as possible for academic classes.

Students who submit proof of academic English Proficiency are eligible for early registration for winter quarter academic classes. You can help students take advantage of this opportunity by checking 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, our advisors register new students for classes they will need to succeed their first quarter.

Our Relationship with YOU

We greatly value our partner relationships. The key to any relationship is communication. So, let us know how we are doing and what we could be doing better--together. We welcome your suggestions and ideas about how to improve our relationship with you and our relationship with our mutual customers--students and their parents.

Housing Information for Students Under 18 Years of Age

Leaving GRCC housing for students below the age of 18 We very strongly recommend that students under 18 years old reside in GRCC-approved housing: host families or Campus Corner Apartments (for students 17 years old or older). We will make every effort to notify parents if underage students leave GRCC-approved housing. Moving out of GRCC-approved housing by students under 18 will be considered unauthorized unless the parents sign an authorization giving their approval for the move.
