Student Advisor

Student Advisors assist students to achieve their educational goals. All advisors have lived, traveled, and studied in many parts of the world and the majority have Master's degrees. They use their education and training to provide comprehensive academic and cultural information to students. They also strive to create a sense of community for International students that helps them feel comfortable and welcome. All students are assigned an advisor, which allows every international student personal service.

Educational Advisors work one-on-one with students in designing their educational plan. They also assist students to transfer to universities in the U.S Once you have been admitted to Green River you will receive an e-mail from you advisors tell about themselves and the services they offer.
