2009-2010 Promotional Materials

We realize that it is very important to get updated promotional materials to our partners as early as possible. I wanted to let you know that one of our top goals this year is to get our annual mailing of promotional materials out one month earlier than last year. Our goal is to have the mailing go out the second week of June.

The most critical item we are waiting for is the tuition figure. That is decided by the Washington State legislature which is currently in session.

We will post the updates to our website as soon as it is available.

Take Advantage of Pre-arrival Registration for New Academic Students

Pre-arrival Registration for summer and fall begins on May 11. Applicants who have demonstrated proof of English proficiency can work with our IP Advising Team to register for academic classes before they arrive on campus. This gives them a jump start on getting the classes they need to have a successful start their first quarter.

For your students who have not demonstrated English proficiency as part of the admission process, please check with them to see if they have taken or plan to take TOEFL, IELTS or any of the accepted proof of proficiency as listed on our website.  As soon as we receive proof of English proficiency, new students can get registered for academic classes they need to have a successful start their first quarter.

Information regarding the Swine Flu Outbreak in North America

At the time of this Partners’ Newsletter there have been no suspected or confirmed cases of Swine flu in or around Green River Community College. We want to assure our partners that Green River Community Emergency Operations Committee is monitoring the current situation and has an emergency plan in place in the unlikely event we should need one.
