Green River Adds UC Riverside to List of Pathway Schools

Green River College’s University Transfer Pathway (UTP) Program provides Conditional Admissions and Designated Pathways to nearly 40 partner institutions in the United States and abroad.

We are proud to announce that we have a new UTP Partner: University of Califoria, Riverside (UCR).  UC Riverside has agreed to a Designated Pathway. 

UCR is a great choice for students who are looking for a UC education but who feel overwhelmed by the hyper-competitive admission requirements and high price of other UC schools.  UCR is also one of only three UC schools that offers a Business Administration Degree.  The minimum GPA for entry is a 2.8 and students who have an evaluated GPA of 3.0 or higher are guaranteed a $13,500 scholarship per academic year.  The U.S. News and World Report (2018) ranks UC Riverside as:

  • 58th in Top Public Schools
  • 82nd in Engineering Programs (undergraduate)
  • 78th in Business Schools (undergraduate)

Green River College enjoys a high reputation for sending its international students to top universities all over the US in its "2+2" transfer program. In addition to the University Transfer Pathways, some 100 US universities come to Green River twice a year to recruit international students to their schools. Recent visitors to Green River have included: Arizona State, Columbia, Baylor, Johns Hopkins, Washington, Colorado, Toronto and many other highly ranked universities.

The Green River cost advantage continues to make the 2+2 option viable for students from countries with both three year and four year bachelor’s degree systems. Two years of Green River tuition at just over $10,000 per year compares favorably to one year of international student tuition at most US and foreign universities. The fact that students can come to Green River one or two years before graduating from high school saves even more time and money. We are honored to serve more and more students from around the world who seek bachelor’s degrees from top US universities in an affordable and well organized program.
