Green River College is a public college founded in 1965. More than 11,000 students study at Green River, with over 1,300 international students from 60 plus countries. Most international students come to Green River for its nationally recognized “2+2” transfer program to top US universities, its High School Completion Plus program, and personal service.
Green River is not only ranked #9 in international student enrollment among community colleges in the USA (IIE, 2019-2020), but was also the recipient of the Paul Simon Award for Internationalization. This is the most prestigious award for quality in international higher education and the ultimate endorsement of an institution’s commitment to educating global citizens.
Our international students have been admitted to top, world-ranked universities including UC Berkeley, UCLA, Brown, Cornell, Columbia, Johns Hopkins, Indiana University, Purdue, University of Michigan, University of Texas-Austin, University of Washington and many others. In addition, Green River College has Transfer Pathway agreements with over 40 top universities, including universities in Europe and Canada.
A key to each student’s success at Green River and beyond is the individual transfer plan. Every student works with their assigned advisor to develop an individual transfer plan that includes: student’s major, destination transfer universities, and a two-year course plan.
International Programs offers comprehensive services for international students including admission, orientation, housing, advising, activities, peer mentors, High School Completion, and Intensive English. All international students have an assigned advisor based on their major. New international students are required to take International College Experience and Foundation for Success, a peer mentor program.
Green River offers European students who are done with high school, but not ready to commit to a major or university, an opportunity to study abroad with Green River College. Students can take classes and live the American college life in Washington, California, Hawaii, Australia, and New Zealand. Students can choose the program that works best for them. Check out the Gap Year website for more information.

“During my time at Green River, I learned lessons that I am still using today and without which I would never have gotten into my graduate programs at Oxford and Yale. Not only did I learn how to write papers, argue well and present in front of large groups of people, the extracurricular activities on campus were also pivotal learning experiences.”
