In Washington State, qualified high school students can skip up to two years of high school, take college classes at a community college, and receive dual credit for both a high school diploma and a two-year college associate degree. International students must finish at least 10th Grade (Year 1) of high school before attending Green River College, although finishing 11th Grade (Year 2) is highly recommended. Students can save one or two years in earning their bachelor's degrees. Extra time will be needed if students do not have TOEFL 61 or IELTS 5.5 and must start in Intensive ESL.
