Testimony of students

MANAV MAJITHIA:Pursuing Computer Science & Engineering

I have enrolled for the University Transfer Program at Green River College. I came here at the age of 16. My study plan at Green River is of 8 Quarters. I am currently in my second quarter. This program is time-saving as I can complete my High School Diploma and first two years of bachelor’s degree together in just 2 years. I will get an Associate Degree in my major, i.e Computer Science, and then transfer to any other prestigious university in the United States. I am aiming for transfer to the University of California, Berkeley.

The college is very nice. The campus is very big with a lot of facilities. There are many activity clubs at college and a lot of events to participate in throughout the quarter. You get to choose your subjects. You can choose class time which is suitable to you. You get an opportunity to interact with other international students from different countries. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Here you learn important responsibilities of international students and adapt to the American life.

If you are planning to study abroad, YAP is the best pathway to the United States. You don’t have to worry about SATs. This program is also money saving as it is less expensive than other universities in US.

I would recommend this program to all those who are planning to study abroad.
