20140717 carrie thrash-veteransWashington State Community College (WSCC) is a "Military Friendly School", offering veterans the opportunity to go to college during or after their service. The adjustment from serving the country to attending college classes can be difficult, and WSCC is here to make it easier. Veterans have had specialized training, education, and have learned the dedication it takes to succeed. These skills can be very helpful when beginning post-secondary study at Washington State Community College. Servicemen and women are offered a wide variety of educational assistance through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA): including the Post 9/11 GI Bill, Montgomery GI Bill, Transfer of Benefit, and Veterans Vocational Rehab.


The Business Management classes at Washington State Community College (WSCC) over the course of the past year have worked with seven local businesses and Pamela Lankford at the Small Business Development Office to help develop and create their marketing plans.

WSCC...A Great Place to Expand Your Mind!

Washington State Community College (WSCC) is highlighting it's Liberal Arts & Sciences Division as a part of the college's new marketing campaign. In June, WSCC's Marketing and Public Relations Department began showcasing each of the school's divisions. Profiles of faculty members and graduates from the divisions can be seen on TV Channel 22 and www.wscc.edu. There are many advantages to a student choosing a Liberal Arts & Sciences program at WSCC. Classes have smaller student/faculty ratio, typically 16/1. Students will get an affordable quality education at a convenient location in Marietta, Ohio. The 78 (18 full time, 60 part time) faculty members are highly qualified; 10% of the faculty have doctorate degrees. Perhaps the biggest advantage would be that the TAG (transfer assurance guides) and TM (transfer modules) guarantees 100% automatic transfer to any Ohio public colleges and universities. Washington State Community College Liberal Arts & Sciences Division also offers to students a wide variety of extracurricular activities such as Drama Club, Science Club and Social Justice Club. An Honors program is an up and coming program for the Arts & Sciences Division. The A&S Division helps make WSCC the college of first choice for students who are looking for a seamless pathway to a four year degree.
