Residence is not required to participate in this program. All participants who register for classes through Green River College are considered our students and receive a Green River transcript. Students from sponsoring college's may be able to register for their classes through their own institution.
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.
