Apply Now for Best Classes, Housing and Scholarships

February is a great month to apply for summer and Fall Quarters 2010. There are still many options available for courses and many times you can plan your courses so you have time to participate in sports, activities and student government programs.

Housing options are plentiful at this time of year for Fall Quarter. There is access to Campus Corner Apartments and close by home stays. The closer you are to campus the less time spent traveling to your residence. Plan ahead and save hours of traveling time.

Why not apply for a scholarship? Most scholarships for Fall Quarter 2010 are still available. Please visit the GRCC scholarship website for complete details

New Academic Students Can Register for Classes Before Arriving in the U.S.

Some universities and colleges don't allow international student to register for classes until orientation and there are very few classes to choose from. Green River is different. We are committed to making sure that new academic international students have every opportunity to register for academic classes before arriving in the US so that they can secure a strong academic schedule their first quarter.

  • Applicants who have demonstrated proof of academic-level English proficiency are eligible to register for academic classes before they arrive on campus.
  • If you have demonstrated proof of English proficiency as part of the admission process, you will be contacted by our staff to register for classes.
  • If you have submitted proof of English proficiency and have not been contacted to register for academic classes within 30 days of the start of your initial quarter, please contact the College.
