Course Placement Options

While Green River College campuses have restricted access, all placement assessments may be taken remotely. 

You must have a Green River student ID number and a Green River College student email address to complete placement. If you have not yet applied to the college, please do so now at greenriver.edu/applynow.

Remote Placement Proctoring Options

Many courses require an assessment of a student's skill level in reading, writing and math to ensure students are prepared to successfully complete the course. Students' course placement will determine how they progress through their program of study. Appropriate placement is important as it impacts a student's progression through their program and alignment of their demonstrated skill set to promote academic success.

Your previous educational experience will help determine the options most likely to place you successfully. Identify yourself below and click on a placement method to learn more information.
