international student college experience

GRCC graduates transfer to top universities all over the U.S.

With almost 85 percent of its students intending to transfer to four-year institutions, Green River Community College offers comprehensive support services to help students get into top transfer universities. These support services range from a dedicated ESL program to the development of an individualized degree plan and one-on-one advising. By completing their first two years at Green River, students not only save money on tuition but also lay the foundation for their subsequent success at a bachelors institution.

Since the early 2000s, almost 2,700 Green River students have been accepted to four-year institutions all over the United States, including schools such University of California-Berkeley, UCLA, John Hopkins, University of Michigan, University of Wisconsin, and George Washington University. The top five institutions accepting GRCC transfer students are Indiana University-Bloomington, the University of Washington, Washington State University, Seattle University, and Ohio State. Many Green River alumni also go on to attend highly-ranked master's and PhD programs after earning their bachelor's degrees.

One of GRCC's strategies has been to develop close partnerships, including conditional guaranteed admission agreements, with four-year institutions to help ease the transfer process. They also hold international transfer fair that hosts representatives from over 70 universities from all over the US.
