If you are new to our college, welcome and I wish you success and encourage you to take advantage of the services available on campus to help you succeed.

The campus continues to build and renovate our facilities to provide you with the best learning environment possible. Student success is our highest priority, and the faculty, staff, and administrators are here to provide you with a rigorous curriculum and student support services. I urge you to visit our website ( to obtain information on the various services and opportunities.

Now more than ever, it is essential to obtain an advanced degree and/or certificate to improve your potential for higher earnings, job security, and career advancement.

Under these unique and unprecedented times, our campus might look and feel a little different since the majority of our classes currently are online.  However, our hope is to transition to fully being back on campus by the end of the academic year.  Most importantly, in adhering to Governor Inslee’s mandates and CDC requirements, our campus continues to ensure a safe and inviting environment for our students.
