Green River Community College is fully accredited. Academic courses will usually be accepted by other institutions offering the same (or similar) courses. However, each institution has its own policy and transferability should never be assumed. The Career and Advising staff is available to answer most questions involving transfer of credits and can provide transfer guides for most four-year colleges and universities in Washington State.
You should be aware that courses with "Pass" grades may not satisfy the requirements in their major field. You are responsible for knowing transfer requirements and policies, and you are urged to consult the catalog of the college, which you plan to attend after Green River.
You may not repeat a course for which you have earned credit except when such a repeat is necessary to satisfy a requirement for improving academic or skill progress (grades). Under no circumstance can you repeat any course more than twice. (This is defined as two repeats in addition to the original enrollment).
The Health Science and Family Division has more restrictive policies regarding repeating classes. See program advisor for specific information.
Repeat - The symbol "R" after a grade indicates the student later repeated the class. The grade/credit from this class does not affect GPA. (This is used on transcripts after the grade or grades earned in a first/previous class). The last repeat class on the transcript is the final grade.
