Prospective Students Registration


  • What happens if students miss the registration deadline?
    The student will not be able to participate in the Running Start program for the quarter. Students must be registered or officially waitlisted for classes by the deadline (vs. just having submitted your Enrollment Verification form).
  • The COMPASS didn’t accurately reflect my student’s abilities…help!
    Running Start students are strongly encouraged to continue with math courses – even if they have met their high school’s math diploma requirement. Stopping out of a math sequence can make it difficult later on to get back into the groove of taking math. Students may complete math at the high school or decide to take math at Green River – either way, it’s a good idea to do so.

    Please visit the Placement section of our site for information on advising and placement. Aside from the COMPASS, there are other ways students are placed into math at Green River. If your student feels their COMPASS scores are not an accurate reflection of their skills, these options may be useful to them.
