The Community Colleges of Spokane will start offering classes on the Washington State University campus starting April 3.
The program, according to a news release, “will expose community college students to university life and enhance college transfer opportunities.”
“Washington State University has always been a strong partner to our community colleges,” said Spokane Falls Community College President Janet Gullickson, in a news release. “Moving our Pullman operations onto their campus takes that partnership to a whole new level and allows us to greatly enhance the educational opportunities for our students.”
The CCS Pullman campus will be housed in the WSU Math Annex and Kruegel Hall. Community college students enrolled in Pullman will be given Cougar ID cards and will have access to the WSU libraries.
CCS currently has more than 200 students in the Pullman area, according to the release. For the past 16 years those students have been at the Gladish Community Center in Pullman.
“The dynamic partnership between CCS and WSU addresses the needs of the community in a collaborative and creative manner,” said A.G. Rud, chairman of the WSU Faculty Senate, in a news release. “Working on the steering committee with CCS leadership represents a new partnership for the university and opens up new opportunities in line with its land-grant mission.”
Tuition will be the same at the WSU campus as it is in Spokane.
