Our Advising Philosophy
At Green River, we practice relationship-based, holistic advising. We strive to form supportive relationships with each of our students and your advisor will get to know you by name. We advise students on all academic and immigration-related matters, but we are also here to help with cultural adjustment, personal issues, and more. Your advisor is committed to your success in all aspects. We believe in the intertwined success of the whole student: your academic success cannot be separated from your extracurricular activities, social life, mental and physical health, career goals, family expectations, and more.
You will be assigned an advisor based on your major. We advise by major so that each advisor can do extensive research into their assigned fields. That way, we can provide students with the best advice about transferring to specific majors at the most suitable universities. When students change majors, they may change advisors. Learn more about university transfer and our university transfer pathway partners below:
Green River is a leader in University Transfer.
University Transfer Pathway
Green River has pathway agreements with nearly 40 universites.
Meeting Your Advisor
Your advisor will connect with you via email a few weeks before New Student Orientation. After you arrive on campus, you will meet your advisor at Orientation, and you will continue to meet your advisor through 1-on-1, in-person appointments. In addition, if you have a quick question, you can connect to an advisor or Zoom.
