What to Expect
View the winter 2020 International Student Orientation Calendar.
All new students take an assessment during Orientation. Students who submitted English proficiency at least 3 weeks before Orientation will take assessments for academic class placement and students that haven't will take the English placement test.
After you are admitted to Green River College, you will be assigned an advisor. Your advisor will send you a welcome email before orientation.
Students who have met the English Proficiency Requirements and are eligible for academic classes, will meet with their advisor before registering for classes. Halfway through their first quarter academic students meet one-on-one with their advisor to develop a personal education plan. It includes their major, destination universities and a 2-year course plan.
During your first two weeks you'll visit Seattle with student leaders and staff from Green River for a fun day of sightseeing and shopping!
Green River provides a free overnight trip for new international students. You will stay in a comfortable, heated lodge and enjoy a traditional campfire and activities like swimming, boating, horseback riding, archery, games, and more with American and international student leaders!
What to Wear
Students and faculty dress casually at Green River. A typical winter outfit is jeans and a pullover or shirt; in the warm summer months, many students wear short pants to class. A light jacket is good to have any time of year.
