Again, Green River College Ranked #1 in Washington State

By International Programs, December 9, 2022

Green River College (GRC) Ranks #1 in Washington State for the second year in a row when it comes to the number of international students at a community college. GRC ranks #11 in the USA overall. -  IIE Open Doors Report for 2021-22

Why is Green River College the first choice for many international students? 

Here are some of the top reasons:

  1. Top Transfer Program - GRC students get into top universities across the country and the world - See transfer record.
  2. Over 40 University Partnerships - When you apply for either the university transfer or high school completion programs, you can choose to receive a conditional admission letter or statement from one of our University Transfer Pathways
  3. Transfer Fair - Largest in Washington State for community colleges - Twice a year 60+ universities visit our campus so students can ask questions about transferring, housing, scholarships, internships, and more with university representatives. 
  4. High School Completion Program - In Washington State, qualified high school students can skip up to two years of high school, take university classes at a college, and receive dual credit for their high school diploma and a two-year college associate degree. 
  5. Cost Savings - Tuition at most public and private universities is more than three times the tuition at community colleges.
  6. Small Class Sizes - College class sizes are typically small (20-35) and students receive close personal attention from their faculty and advisors.
  7. Large Staff - Our program offers 40+ caring staff members who support the needs of our international student population.
  8. Peer Mentors - New international students are paired with current students who are trained to help them adjust to living and studying in a new country.  
  9. Advisors work with students within a specific major - Advisors assist students with preparing an educational plan to show them exactly which classes are required to transfer to specific universities/majors.  They are experts in their subject areas and can pass along that wisdom to students.
  10. Beautiful Location - Green River College is known for its beautiful campus. It is surrounded by forest and trees and is 45 minutes south of Seattle.
