Institution Details

Green River Community College



Named after the river that winds through most of its service area, Green River Community College is a two-year public college in Washington state that offers degrees and certificates in academic and professional and technical programs, as well as courses in continuing education and developmental education. Located on 186 acres, Green River has been committed to maintaining the ecological integrity of the campus’s forested growth. Students enjoy this beautiful campus in its safe and peaceful environment.

A core of about 120 full-time faculty and 210 part-time faculty teach daytime and evening classes. The student population is approximately 9,000—both full-time and part-time students—and features a growing diversity of ages and ethnic backgrounds.


Green River Community College is located just 35 minutes south of Seattle in the small, safe city of Auburn. Our friendly and attractive campus provides the serious student with a quiet, natural environment in which to study. Students can live and study in a safe, family-oriented community during the week, and take advantage of city life in Seattle on the weekends.

The Seattle area is a popular destination for international students. It is a global center for trade and technology and is home to high tech and business leaders including Microsoft,, and Starbucks Coffee.

The Seattle area offers great restaurants and shopping, world-class sports, and a variety of cultural activities. Seattle's beautiful, natural surroundings provide spectacular views and many opportunities for having fun outdoors.


The roots of GRCC stretch back to 1945, when the Auburn School District started a program of adult evening education, which soon became the largest in Washington state. The popularity of the program convinced citizens from the surrounding communities that the Green River Valley needed its own community college. Local committees began working to secure state approval to start a community college in 1959. In 1963, the determination of local citizens paid off when the Washington State Board of Education approved the community college.
