Affiliated with community colleges, the University Centers offer upper division courses in selected degree areas. They are designed to serve the needs of students who desire a bachelor’s or master’s degrees, and may need accommodation for family and work obligations.</p><p>In addition to the centers named above, there are CWU-Yakima, at Yakima Valley College; CWU-Moses Lake, at Big Bend Community College; and CWU-Wenatchee, at Wenatchee Valley College. There are also two instructional centers, in Sammamish and on Joint Base Lewis-McChord.</p><p><br>Media Contact: Valerie Chapman-Stockwell, Public Affairs, 509-963-1518,<br>&nbsp;</p></br></br></br>State Funds CWU $536K to Expand Opportunities for Community College Students, 22 Aug 2017 09:38:55<p>Central Washington University has received more than a half-million dollars in state funding <a href="/sites/default/files/documents/CWU Community College Partnerships.pdf" target="_blank"><img style="margin: 3px; width: 400px; height: 266px; float: right;" alt="CWU University Centers" src="/lynnwood/sites/"></a>to allow for continued partnership with Edmonds and Pierce community colleges to provide four-year degrees in information technology and administrative management and interdiciplinary studies.</p><p>“These partnerships bring degree programs to students whose jobs and other commitments can make it tough to earn a college degree,” noted Katherine Frank, CWU’s provost and vice president for academic and student life. “Edmonds and Pierce are tremendous, long-time partners and we’re all committed to putting four-year degree programs within reach of students in those communities.”</p><p>CWU received $214,006 for its partnership with Edmonds Community College (ECC) for the bachelor of applied science degree in information technology and administrative management and $322,144 for its joint efforts with Pierce College (PC) for a bachelor of science degree in interdiciplinary studies—social studies/social services.</p><p>ECC in Lynnwood, which has an enrollment of 13,000 students, is also home to CWU-Lynnwood, a <a href=";t=6s" target="_blank">university center </a>that offers baccalaureate degrees in accounting, business administration, law and justice, and other academic programs.</p><p>PC Fort Steilacoom, which has an enrollment of 16,916 students, is also home of CWU-Pierce County, a university center offering baccalaureate degrees in supply chain management, leadership and management, elementary education, social services, and other academic programs.</p><p>The state-funding goes directly to support degree completion – paying for faculty instruction and staff. The legistative support and strong partnerships with ECC and PC supports CWU’s mission of access.</p><p>Frank said providing flexible timing and locations for degree programs has never been more important. Central’s university centers provide access to those who cannot attend the main campus but desire a quality education.</p><p><u><strong>Background</strong></u><br>The university centers were established in the mid 70s and both state-funded degree program offerings started in 2006.</p><p>CWU has six university centers and two instructional sites, in addition to its residential campus in Ellensburg. Centers are located throughouout the state in Lynnwood, Des Moines, Lakewood, Moses Lake, Wenatchee, and Yakima – with new instructional sites at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Sammamish.</p><p>To learn more about CWU Centers and their offerings, visit <a href="" target="_blank">CWU Centers web page</a>.&nbsp;</p><p>Media contact: Dawn Alford, public affairs coordinator, 509-963-1484,</p></br>2016-2017 Registration Handbook, 08 Jul 2016 10:40:32<p>The 2016-2017 new student registration handbook is now available. &nbsp;<a href="">Click here</a> For access to important information regarding registration, academic calendars, and more, click here.</p><p style="text-align: center;"><a href=""><img alt="Student Registration Handbook" src="/lynnwood/sites/" style="width: 100px; height: 129px;"></a></p></p style="text-align: center;">Congratulations 2016 Graduates, 17 Jun 2016 09:12:21<p>320 Students participated in the Westside Commencement Ceremony on June 12th, 2016 at the Kent ShoWare Center. &nbsp;Congratulations Graduates!</p><p>Here are a few pictures!!!</p><p><img alt="" src="/lynnwood/sites/" style="width: 250px; height: 169px;"></p><p><strong><span style="line-height: 1.4;">Our Master's Graduates!!</span></strong></p><p><img alt="" src="/lynnwood/sites/" style="line-height: 1.4; width: 200px; height: 328px;"></p><p><strong>Our Bachelor's Graduates!!</strong></p></span style="line-height: 1.4;">Triton Alert - Emergency Notification System, 19 May 2014 10:00:52<p><strong>The Triton Alert</strong> - Emergency Notification System is used to notify Edmonds Community College and CWU Lynnwood campus and community members when there is a campus closure or emergency&nbsp;situation.&nbsp; Anyone can sign up on their mobile devices to receive text messages and/or email notifications.
