Easy Payment Plan (STEP)

What is STEP?

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:

  • 1st payment of $500 (increase effective summer quarter 2016)
  • 2nd payment 50% of balance
  • 3rd payment is total balance due

STEP is also an option for students who are waiting for their Financial Aid file to be reviewed.

How to sign up and pay:

  1. Register for classes.
  2. Register for item number STEP.
    This will add the $25 non-refundable STEP enrollment fee to your class schedule.
  3. Pay 1st payment of $500 within four business days of registering. (increase effective summer quarter 2016)
  4. Pay 2nd and 3rd payments by payment due dates listed below:
