A Message from Independent Colleges of Washington

We hope you are well. You have been on our minds, as you work with our young adults in this tumultuous time. Thank you for the good work you do in counseling and supporting Washington State’s high school students.

As your partners in the work of guiding students to post-secondary education and training, we want to offer our support to you as well. Each college and university in the State of Washington seeks to be accommodating as the COVID-19 pandemic disrupts normal life.

We will also ask for your patience. Often, challenges that seem simple reveal themselves to have greater consequences that need to be thought through.

Whether you are working to answer questions for your seniors in the Class of 2020, or help the students in the Classes of 2021, 2022 and 2023, we have information to share.

Independent Colleges of Washington member campuses have collaborated with our public higher education partners to guidance specific to different groups of students. Should you have admission or financial aid questions, please contact us.

Additionally, with K-12 public and private schools staying closed for the remainder of the academic year, we have been working to answer common questions for students pursuing dual credit. We are grateful to be in partnership with you. Thank you for your dedicated work to the students, and to your communities. We look forward to continued work together.
