What’s it like to learn at WSCC?

WSCC faculty and staff take pride in maintaining a dynamic learning environment that engages College Credit Plus high school students with adult learners. In order to accommodate schedules and learning styles, classes are taught in a variety of formats: face-to-face, online, blended (both online and in the classroom), day, and evening. 

The Washington State experience includes learning opportunities that allow students to apply classroom theory to real-world situations. Students benefit from hands-on experiences with state-of-the-art equipment and labs. In addition, internships and special projects provide students with opportunities to network with area employers. The respected health programs at Washington State include clinical rotations at many of the regional hospitals and healthcare providers. Many of the College’s business and engineering programs also work with local employers to provide job experience for students while they are still in school. This hands-on experience prepares WSCC graduates for careers with local, regional, or national firms.

In addition to hands-on programs, WSCC also prepares students for transfer through a variety of transfer programs concentrating in areas such as liberal arts and general sciences. Washington State’s strong partnerships with four-year colleges enable students to start the transfer discussion early and have a seamless transition. Students who plan their first two years of college at Washington State can also realize significant cost savings, which will serve them well as they continue their education toward a bachelor’s degree or beyond.

“I had law school in mind when I started my journey at Washington State Community College. The guidance and support I received at Washington State served as a firm foundation upon which I am building my career. So far, so good – I’m an attorney at the age of 23.”

“The administration and guidance offices often talk about the impact and the importance of WSCC with our students. We emphasize the value and comfort of attending WSCC prior to going to a four-year institution. There are many students who would benefit going to WSCC, which would allow them to mature and grow as young adults before venturing out in the real world without parent supervision and guidance.”
