Career & Advising Center

Notice: Green River College will be closed to the public each Friday between April 30 and June 18, as the College prepares to transition to ctcLink, the PeopleSoft based system that will replace our current legacy student and employee facing software system. During this time, instructional classes and library services will continue as scheduled; however, many student support services (including the GRC Virtual Assistance portal) and campus offices will be closed so employees can participate in necessary training. Read More.
