Accepting Applications for Winter and Spring Quarters

It's time to apply for winter and spring quarters. Applicants who have demonstrated proof of academic-level English proficiency are eligible to register for academic classes before they arrive on campus! This gives international students an opportunity to secure a strong academic schedule their first quarter.

We strongly encourage students to apply early to establish their housing placement priority. Housing placement priority is based on the following:

  1. Receipt of completed housing application
  2. Receipt of $300 housing placement fee.
  3. Visa approval confirmation for students from China and Vietnam.

Our popular Campus Corner Apartments fill every quarter and have a waiting list. So, apply early.

Applying for Admissions to Green River is easy. You need to submit a completed application form along with a $50 application fee and a financial support statement. There is one application form for all programs. Apply now!
