Entry Advising

Entry Advisors work with students who are new to Green River to ensure that they have the appropriate information and resources to successfully enroll and get started in their first quarter.

COMPASS Results Interpretation

Most students use the COMPASS assessment for class placement purposes. When students finish the COMPASS assessment they meet with an Entry Advisor to understand where their COMPASS socres place them in relation to their program requirements, options for retaking the COMPASS and/or using alternative placement methods, and receive course recommendations for their first quarter.

Transcript Review for Transferring in Students

Students with previous college level credits in English and/or Math can bring unofficial transcripts to the Welcome Center and have them reviewed by an Entry Advisor to determine if the credits can be used as prerequisites or for placement purposes.

This service is meant to help students preparing for their first quarter at Green River and does not replace the need for submitting official transcripts and a Transcript Evaluation Request to have previous credits applied towards a program of study.
