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:

  • 1st payment of 1/3 tuition and fees 
  • 2nd payment 1/3 tuition and fees
  • 3rd payment is total balance due

STEP is also an option for students who are waiting for their Financial Aid file to be reviewed. Being enrolled in the payment plan is not a tuition deferment hold. Students on the STEP payment plan are responsible for making payments by the scheduled deadlines.

How to sign up and pay:

  1. Register for classes.
  2. Enroll in the STEP Payment Plan, tutorial available.
    This will add the $25 non-refundable STEP enrollment fee to your class schedule.
  3. Follow the published payment due dates

Student Tutorials for adding the payment plan are located on the Green River website.

Once a student has made at least a partial payment of tuition while on STEP, they are obligated to the balance and will not be dropped for lack of payment.
* International students have financial requirements with their F-1 student status and may contact the International Programs Office of related procedures.

Refund Procedure:

  • 100% refund of tuition and all fees when a course is cancelled by Green River.
  • 100% refund of tuition and fees (minus $25 STEP quarterly enrollment fee) if the student withdraws from classes through the fifth instructional day of the quarter.
  • $25 STEP enrollment fee is non-refundable.
