WSU Vancouver, Clark, Lower Columbia to sign agreement

VANCOUVER — As WSU Vancouver will be admitting freshmen students for the first time in the fall of 2006, the university wants to ensure that transfer students continue to have opportunities to complete their four-year degrees following completion of their two-year degrees at Clark and Lower Columbia Colleges. As a result, the three institutions have crafted a unique and precedent-setting agreement, which guarantees that all students who complete the co-admission and transfer by major process, previously agreed to by the three institutions, will be able to transfer to WSU Vancouver.

“This agreement will make it even easier for students to transfer from our local community colleges to WSU Vancouver,” said WSU Vancouver Chancellor Hal Dengerink. “It is a unique arrangement that serves our students better than any such agreement in the state.”

Clark College President Wayne Branch agrees, stating, “The partnership that we have been able to forge between WSU Vancouver, Clark College and Lower Columbia College is exemplary in its focus on student success. This effort is made possible by the ability of the faculty and staff at all three institutions to collaborate and mutually problem solve.”

The formal agreement will be signed June 8 at 3 p.m. on the WSU Vancouver campus, on the east terrace of the Clark Center. WSU President V.

, Charles Earl, executive director of the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges and James Sulton, executive director of the Higher Education Coordinating Board will authorize the agreement.

WSU Vancouver offers 14 bachelors and nine master’s degrees in more than 35 fields of study. The campus is located at 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave., east of the 134th Street exit from either I-5 or I-205.
