What if I get injured or sick while playing sports or studying in the USA?

Coaches understand that injuries are a part of being an athlete. If you get injured while competing in any school sanctioned training session or competition, you will be covered by the school’s insurance as well as your own personal insurance to cover any costs associated with treatment and rehabilitation. If you’re on scholarship, getting injured doesn’t put you at risk of losing your scholarship. If you fall ill while attending school in the USA, you are able to see the on-site nurse for assistance, your athletic trainers, or the international student affairs office. They will help you book a doctor’s appointment if your condition is unable to be treated on campus, all of which will be covered by your personal insurance.

Which colleges and universities in the USA are GRF affiliated with?

Green Room Futures is not directly affiliated with any specific institutions in the United States, our loyalty is to each of our students and their family. GRF has established connections and professional relationships with thousands of colleges/universities across all areas of the United States, at all levels in all divisions, and we are always expanding our network! GRF will match your preferences, results, and skills with the right US institutions that compliment you. Our best interests are in finding our students the best possible options based on who they are and what they wish to accomplish. Every GRF promotional process is individually tailored to a student’s personal academic, athletic, artistic (when applicable), social, and financial needs.

Do I need to know what I want to study before I get to the USA?

No, the US Collegiate system does not require you to choose exactly what you want to study prior to commencing university level study. You are able to enter college “undecided” and there will still be coursework available that will pertain and transfer into any specific degree program. Adversely, you may know exactly what you wish to study and stick with that from start to finish. No matter whether you know, or are undecided, you are able to complete and receive an undergraduate bachelor’s qualification over a 4-year period.

When should I begin the college recruitment process?

Right now! That’s the simple answer, irrespective of your age. It’s never too early to begin this process and the earlier a student starts the more choice and control they have over their outcomes. There is so much that goes into the US college recruitment process and the more time we all have to work through it, always helps to maximise your results.

How do the costs of studying in the United States compare with studying to Australia?

Green Room Futures sources opportunities for students that adhere to the financial circumstances of each family, and what they are wanting and able to invest into higher education. In the USA, the way the college/university system works with on-campus boarding and its awarding of athletic and academic scholarships, families on average are paying far less per year for the same academic qualifications and 10 times the life experience for their students. Typically, families are paying between 10k to 15k USD per year for tuition and fees, housing, meals, and sporting activities when attending a US institution. Compare these averages to what it costs to live and study at university in most international countries of the world and your findings will be eye opening!
