Winter Quarter: Airport Pickup

We look forward to welcoming our new winter quarter students! Please note that the move-in date is December 27th. If you applied for Green River housing, please email when you have your flight information so that we can arrange airport pickup.

Note that there is no airport pickup between 9:00pm and 9am. Also, due to the holidays there is no pickup on December 24th or 25th. Students arriving during these times will need to make arrangements to stay at a hotel for the night. Their airport greeter or host family will pick them up the following day

Hotel and Travel Assistance for Family

If students or family members need assistance with hotel arrangements, please email and we would be happy to help you with your reservation. Family members are also invited to join a special orientation for family members. The family orientation includes meeting international programs staff, a campus tour, and a tour of the area around campus.

Intensive English Language Program Levels 1 & 2 Offered at GRCC Kent Campus

Fall quarter we piloted offering Level 1 & 2 of our Intensive English Language Program at Green River's branch campus in Kent, Washington. Our goal was to take advantage of GRCC Kent Campus's great location in the heart of Kent Station, a vibrant city center. We had positive feedback from students who studied at the Kent Campus last quarter. The highlight for many students was the convenient access to shopping, coffee shops, restaurants and a movie theater. Since the pilot program was a success, we will continue to offer Levels 1 & 2 at the Kent Campus winter quarter.
