In 2022, Green River College (GRC) and Kwantlen Polytechnic University (KPU) entered an articulation agreement to enhance the educational opportunities for GRC students. This agreement allows GRC students to immerse themselves in a diverse academic environment, bridging the gap between GRC and KPU and opening the door to pursuing Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) degrees. The two institutions are now only separated by a simple admissions application and a three-hour drive.

Upon successfully obtaining an Associate in Arts or Associate in Business Degree at GRC, eligible students who meet KPU's admission requirements can seamlessly transition to KPU for their continued studies. Notably, GRC graduates have the opportunity to transfer 36-51 credits to KPU when they enroll in the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Business Administration programs. GRC students may explore admission into other eligible Bachelor programs; the number of transfer credits is subject to their chosen program.

This collaboration fosters an educational pathway that empowers students to take bold strides toward their academic and professional aspirations.

Student Pathway

KPU has created a mapping of transfer credits for our Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Business Administration programs to provide a convenient reference for students interested in these programs. However, it's important to note that program requirements at KPU and GRC may undergo changes during periodic program reviews, which could impact the transfer pathway. For the most up-to-date information, we recommend contacting the International Admissions Office.

Conditions for Admission

Students applying for admission to KPU are required to submit an admission application form and applicable application fee. Students are subject to all KPU admission requirements. If you are a GRC student with questions, please contact International Future Student.   GRC students with questions, please contact International Future Student.
