The William O. Douglas Honors College (DHC) is Central's premier interdisciplinary program for academically talented students at CWU. Students first take DHC designated courses to satisfy gen ed requirements. Then they complete an upper-division faculty mentored capstone project that prepares them for their post-CWU aspirations, be it the global workplace and/or graduate school.


DHC graduates have been accepted to prestigious graduate schools and law schools throughout the country.

Why this program 
  • Students in the DHC can receive scholarships and partial tuition waivers.
  • Honors College students can live in the DHC Living Learning Community in Central's newest residence hall, Barto Hall.
