2011/12 Partner Incentive Payments Will Be Made Spring Quarter

Our annual incentive plan was in effect as of Summer Quarter 2011 and was offered to all Green River agents and referral partners with whom we have a signed Letter of Agreement. The annual incentive will reflect new student enrollments from summer through spring.

Annual incentive payments will be made in spring quarter at time of spring quarter commission payments. Referral partners can earn an additional $10,600 for referring 25 students annually! Commissions shall be awarded independently of the Incentive Plan.

We appreciate our valuable educational partners. We hope this incentive plan further supports and enhances our partnership.
