In Transitional Studies we have 3 programs that get you college-ready as you start your pathway/degree to a living-wage, high-demand career.  

  1. GED®
    • Washington state currently uses the four-part GED® tests for its high school equivalency test.  We have quarterly classes in the day and evening, online and in-person, to help you prepare and practice for the GED. Students enrolled in our $25/quarter GED-prep program will receive unlimited free test vouchers. 
    • For information about GED®, see the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges web page.
  2. High School+ 
    No high school diploma?  No problem.
    • Credit for Life Knowledge: Adults who are at least 18 years old can earn a high school diploma through High School+ -- a program that turns your life experience (work, transcripts, previous training, or military experience) into credits toward a high school diploma.
    • Credit for High School and College (2 for 1!): enroll in a college-level class and get high school credit at the same time.  This dual-credit approach saves you time and money.
    • Customized Education Plans: work one-on-one with our Transition Specialist to assess what credits you have already earned. Then, develop a plan to complete your high school diploma while you start a degree or job training program.
  3. College Prep/Transitional Studies
    • Refresh your Math -- statistics, algebra, and pre-cal. 
    • Brush up your English -- thesis statements, grammar, and paragraph organization.
