The Australia/New Zealand program is developed by Green River College in partnership with Newman College in Melbourne, Australia and Unitec University in Auckland, New Zealand. The Japan program is developed by Green River College in partnership with Kogakuin University in Tokyo, Japan.

Course credits are transfer level, however, since acceptability varies from school to school, you may want to insure that your selections are accepted to the transfer institution of your choice.
