Starting this fall, students will be able to enroll at the University of Washington, Bothell while still completing an associate degree at Cascadia and Shoreline community colleges.

UW Bothell Chancellor Warren Buck, Cascadia Community College Interim President Brinton Sprague and Shoreline Community College President Holly Moore were scheduled to sign dual-enrollment agreements on Wednesday, June 8.

Because of legislative support and additional state funding, the University of Washington, Bothell has just added more admission space for fall 2005. This expansion allows UW Bothell to launch a new dual-enrollment program for students seeking appropriate placement in college this fall. The details include:

• Students earn their first 45 credits at either Shoreline or Cascadia community colleges;

• After meeting program requirements, students apply to dual-enrollment;

• Admitted students become official students at both the community college and the University of Washington, Bothell starting their sophomore year;

• Students complete their associate’s degree at their community college while taking upper level courses at UWB.

The dual-enrollment program at UW Bothell will offer a focused and cost-effective plan to earn both an associate’s degree at either Cascadia or Shoreline Community College and a UW bachelor’s degree in business administration, computing and software systems or interdisciplinary studies.

Dual-enrollment students can: earn priority admission or early credits toward a UW degree, take classes concurrently at both schools, combine credits to achieve full-time status for financial aid and GI Bill benefits, use resources—libraries and computer labs—on Shoreline, Cascadia and UW campuses and take part in Cascadia or Shoreline and UW Bothell student events and activities.
