Welcome Wednesdays

Are you thinking about enrolling at Green River College but not sure how to start or where to get help?
Your next step is to attend a Welcome Wednesday event in September!

Welcome Wednesday activities are designed to assist students with the getting started process (from application through Fall quarter registration) in the same day! Knowledgeable Green River staff will be available to assist with placement, campus tours, advising and registration, and answer questions about funding for college.

Each Welcome Wednesday will include the following activities:

Events that require RSVP:
Orientation and Registration for Fall classes - complete your Student Orientation to Advising and Registration (SOAR) session to sign up for classes. Placement must be completed prior to registering for a SOAR session. If you are having difficulty signing up for a session please call the Welcome Desk at (253) 333-6000 for assistance.

Register for a SOAR session

Scheduled events (no RSVP needed):
Campus tours - join a campus tour to locate your Fall quarter classes and find out where student support resources are located. Tours take approximately 45 minutes and leave from the Welcome Desk on the first floor of the SA building. Tours are available each Welcome Wednesday at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 4 p.m.   

Drop-in Services (no RSVP needed):
Placement determination and assessments - bring placement documentation to the Career and Advising Center for evaluation or take one of our placement assessments in the Assessment & Testing Center.

Determine your best option for placement

Funding information - speak with Financial Aid staff about your FAFSA or WASFA application or learn about Workforce Education, Veterans, scholarship, and payment plan options.

With classes for fall quarter beginning on September 25 this is a great time to join Green River and be a part of Gator Nation! We look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
