I’m not sure what I would like to study. Are there any tools to help me?
While being undecided about what major you want to study gives some students the flexibility to try out a few academic areas before settling on a major, some students like to have a little bit of guidance. At Washington State, we suggest that students use the FOCUS assessment. The FOCUS assessment allows you to explore careers and see what kind of training you will need to be successful in each career.
Can I take college classes while in high school?
Currently, Washington State offers two options for high school students who wish to get college credit while in high school. These options include the Early Enrollment Program (EEP) and Post Secondary Enrollment Options (PSEO).
