Virtual Advising

"This is great!" international students are saying who have tried our new Virtual Advising. The advising team began offering virtual advising spring quarter. Between 1:00-5:00 Monday through Friday an IP advisor is available via online chat. Positive feedback is spreading by word of mouth, and Virtual Advising is getting more and more popular as current students discover this convenient way to get answers and advice they need when they need it

Pre-registration: Boost your math skills and placement

Green River offers pre-registration for new international students qualified for direct entry into academic classes. At most colleges and universities, registration begins a month or two before classes start. Green River's pre-registration helps you get the classes you need your first term of study.

We recently revised our pre-registration form to offer some free, on-line resources to help students improve their math skills and math placement. The attached Pre-Registration Form is sent to all international applicants who meet GRCC's academic English proficiency requirement.

2011/12 Partner Incentive Payments

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.
