Transferring Soon?

Come in to the IP Office to get your I-20 transferred properly. You will need a letter of acceptance from the new school and we will help you with the rest of the paperwork.

Sign up for TOEFL Now!
If you plan to start applying to Universities this fall, you should be aware that many schools require a TOEFL score. Check the school websites to know what they require. If you need a TOEFL score Register for TOEFL early to reserve your seat locally. In recent years many students who waited until fall to register were shocked that they were not able to test in WA State because the seats were full. Even some of those who registered early found that their test date was cancelled the day before testing. Always check your email before the test date. A few of those students also traveled out of State to take the test. Don't let this be your story! Register and test early!

Get that I-20 signature before leaving the country, if you plan to return to GRCC. Don't forget and don't wait until the last minute!

New Class Added

Psych 209 research methods course. It will be offered online this summer. This class will not be offered again until the next academic year 2010-2011, or possibly 2011-2012 if we offer it in the summer.
