One of our top priorities at Green River College is to help students transfer to top universities throughout the United States. That process is complex and takes time, but our friendly, knowledgeable advising staff is available to work with students and help them navigate the process.

During orientation, students get critical information about the US education system and an overview of the process of transfer. Additionally, students are taught about the differences between the US system and other systems throughout the world.

During their first academic term, they will have a “New Student Appointment” to begin the process for themselves. Students will start with “big picture” ideas and goals and then work their way down towards concrete steps necessary for them to reach those goals. As goals are set and revised, they will be reflected on the student’s individualized academic plan.

During the university transfer process, advisors are available to help students with questions about applications, to revise and critique personal statements, and to advise on transition after acceptance to the university of their choice.

Whether advising on transfer to top-tier universities or on more modest goals, the advising team helps guide students through the university transfer process so that they can realize their aspirations for study abroad.
