  • Money: Save time and money and get a Washington State high school diploma and transferable university credit at the same time.
  • Time: Classes count for high school and university transfer. Program typically requires no additional time.*
  • Degrees: Two degrees for the price and time of one! Graduate in just two years with a High School Diploma and a university transfer associate degree.*

Depending on assessment and placement, students may need to take non-transferable, developmental classes.
