Foundation for Success (FFS) is a required one-quarter program that will help you establish a strong learning foundation and enables you to transfer to top universities. FFS offers those adapting to a new culture and language, extra help that will help students be successful in their first quarter. Students in this program have many opportunities to develop and perfect their skills working alongside their Peer Mentors.
Peer Mentors are experienced students who listen to any concerns you might have and can speak with you from their own experience. Having someone to trust right away helps ease the uncertainties of your new life here at Green River. As a new student you will be supported by your Peer Mentor and program staff who will help you learn to manage your academic and daily life. You will be assigned to your own Peer Mentor who will be available by text and email in addition to weekly meetings.
