Want to get a head start on your degree?

While we no longer require the General Education classes to be completed before being admitted to our program, it can help fast-track your progress if you take them at the community college level or through Washington Online Learning at www.waol.org prior to beginning your coursework at CWU. Our advisors recommend trying to take English 101 at your transfer or community college.
