Course Descriptions


This section includes a brief description of each credit class offered on a regular basis at Green River College. Classes are arranged in alphabetical order according to the college department that offers the class.

Each listing includes a course number (prefix & code/number), course title, number of credits awarded, prerequisite and academic transfer distributions are also designated where applicable. Common course numbers are identified by an “&” symbol at the end of the department abbreviation.

Course numbers 100-299 are designated for Green River College programs and courses that transfer to senior institutions (transfer is sometimes limited). The 100 series is ordinarily for first-year students and the 200 series for second-year students, but this distinct varies because of differing requirements at other colleges and universities. The 300 and 400 level series are for third- and fourth-year students.

Consult the “Programs of Study ” section of this catalog and your faculty advisor for specific information about each class and about which classes will meet your requirements.

Aviation - Flight

All fight courses require additional flight fees. Green River College partners with local approved flight schools to complete flight training. The number of training hours and costs vary for each flight course depending on  which school the student selects. VA education benefits only cover the number of hours listed below. Most students need more time to obtain FAA certification and the cost will be incurred to the student as an out- of-pocket expense. Students must also obtain a FAA Class II Medical Certificate before entering the program (Class I for ATP License). Any student requesting to take two flight classes simultaneously (dual enrollment) must have the permission of the Instructor of Record (IOR) prior to enrollment. On or after August 1, 2016, all students will be required to possess a valid FAA Private Pilot License prior to enrolling in any flight course.
