Green River Has Many Resources to Assist You:

Educational Advisors: Every international student is assigned an educational advisor. They are an invaluable resource and provide a wealth of information for international students. Advisors provide assistance in developing educational goals, selecting classes and getting involved in the many activities and programs at the College. When it comes time to plan for transfer to a university they provide information that will help you identify the best options for your educational and professional goals and choose a university that meets your needs.

You will be contacted by your Educational Advisor about one month before the quarter begins. They will answer your questions and help with planning for arrival at the college and selecting courses for your initial quarter. Shortly after arriving on campus, you will be contacted by your advisor to set up a personal advising session. International Student Advisors are available to help you every step along the way to graduation!

Writing Center: The Writing Center is available to assist you in all stages of the writing process. If you have a question about grammar and usage or need help brainstorming ideas or focusing in essays - faculty and student tutors are there to help. There is no need to make an appointment, just drop by. The Center can help you improve in the areas you choose to work and make you feel more confident about your written work.

Math Center: The Math Center assists students in all areas of math. If you are struggling with math come to the center for individual tutoring, math videos, computers and other learning resources. All services are available free of charge to support students in their math studies to achieve success.
