Ready to learn more about Washington’s 34 community and technical colleges?
Whatever you’re interested in doing — whether transferring to a university, training for a career or getting the basics — Washington state community and technical colleges have classes, programs and majors for you.
What You Need to Know – It’s smart to start at a community or technical college and then transfer to a four-year college or university. You’ll enjoy quality instructors, convenient options and smaller classes — all at a fraction of the cost. Earn your associate degree and then transfer to a public university as a junior to finish your bachelor’s.
Community and technical colleges offer advantages you just won’t find in four-year schools. In fact, 40 percent of all bachelor’s graduates from public universities in Washington start at a community or technical college.
A number of community and technical colleges now offer bachelor’s degrees in high-demand fields like nursing, dental hygiene or cybersecurity. These degrees make it possible for students who already have a non-transferrable associate degree in a career field to earn a bachelor’s degree without having to start from scratch at a university. Instead, students can take two more years of upper-level coursework at the community or technical college. Link: https://www.sbctc.edu/our-colleges/explore-colleges/default.aspx
