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. International students must be 16 years old in order to attend Green River College. This process can save a student one or two years in earning their bachelor's degree. In addition, students will have the support from a dedicated team on our staff.


Save Time & Money

Get a Washington State high school diploma plus earn transferable university credit at the same time. Take classes that count for both high school and university transfer! Program typically requires no additional time, and students can receive their High School diploma before their transfer degree


Fast Track

Enter college before completing high school and graduate from university at least one year earlier than your high school classmates


Dual Degrees

Earn two degrees for the price and time of one. Graduate in just two years with a high school diploma plus a university transfer associate degree. Depending on assessment and placement, students may need to take non-transferable, developmental classes.

“The High School Completion Program was a great opportunity for me to begin my journey to the United States earlier and learn about cultural, historical, and political aspects throughout the process of obtaining my High School Diploma. At the same time, I could also complete the college-level classes which saved a lot of time."
