Washington State Flag

Washington, not to be confused with Washington, D.C., is the northwestern-most point in the contiguous U.S. There more than 60 universities and colleges in Washington, including six state schools. One such public institution, the University of Washington, is the oldest university on the West Coast and the largest in the Northwest, with more than 40,000 students enrolled across three campuses. Another is Washington State University, aka “Wazzu,” which has more than 26,000 students enrolled at four campuses. Washington is also home to more than 30 community colleges and nearly 30 private institutions, including Seattle University, the largest independent university in the Northwest with more than 7,500 students enrolled.

Not all students at Washington schools are campus-bound. For those who think distance learning is a good fit for them, there are many online colleges in Washington, including two-year, four-year, public, and private institutions. Both Washington State University and the University of Washington, for instance, have online programs in credentials ranging from certificates to master’s degrees. Students can also pursue offerings from 34 community and technical online colleges at WAOL, a database of online, asynchronous courses run by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges. Wherever your interests and needs take you, we recommend applying to accredited online colleges in Washington.
