2+2 Program - You Can Go Anywhere From Here
Your initial meeting with you advisor is very important in helping you plan your academic future. Most international students come to Green River College with plans to transfer to top ranking four-year universities within the U.S. They take their first two years of general education requirements at Green River and then transfer those credits to a four-year university. Academic Advisors assist students in making the transition to a university easy - they assist in selecting university options that meet your needs and help in planning the right courses so no credits are lost in the transfer process.
Last year Green River international students were admitted to over 60 top universities in the USA. Universities included: University of California- Berkeley, University of Pennsylvania, University of Washington, American University, University of Michigan, Ohio State University and Brown University.
You can go anywhere with a dream and a little planning...
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours."
- Henry David Thoreau
