New Student Advising and Registration

What is New Student Advising and Registration?

New Student Advising and Registration, or NSAR, is a mandatory step in the new student process. NSAR covers important information that all new students should know about Green River including:

  • The resources available at Green River to support your educational goals
  • Your placement and eligibility for first quarter classes
  • Information about your program of study
  • How to register for classes (including receiving your PIN number)
  • What to expect for enrolling in future quarters
  • Assignment to advisor

Who Completes NSAR?

NSAR is mandatory for all new Green River students with the following exceptions:

  • New Running Start students complete a separate mandatory orientation process after submitting an Enrollment Verification Form. Visit Running Start for more information on this process.
  • Transfer-in Students who have completed credit at another college should connect with an advisor in the Career & Advising Center to determine next steps. Please call 253-833-9111 ext. 2641 or email beadvised@greenriver.edu for more information.
  • Students only attending Green River for one quarter and not planning to complete a degree or certificate should connect with an advisor in the Career & Advising Center to determine next steps. Please call 253-833-9111 ext. 2641 or email beadvised@greenriver.edu for more information.
