Budgeting for college can be a challenge. Green River wants to help. That is why we offer an easy payment plan called STEP.
STEP is a tuition payment plan available to assist students to pay their tuition and fees in three manageable payments, following the payment due dates listed in schedule below and published in the quarterly class schedule.
Federal, state and college-based financial aid is available to our students in the form of grants, loans, work-study jobs and scholarships. Financial aid awards are processed throughout the year in the order files are completed, so it is best to apply as early as possible to receive the funding that is still available.
The Green River College Foundation offers over 275 scholarships each year. Students who complete the online application may be eligible for scholarships in the following categories: program based, merit based, need based, summer completion, general scholarships and transfer scholarships.
