Online classes make going to college convenient. If you’re juggling a busy schedule, family and work commitments, you’ll enjoy the flexibility and accessibility of the virtual classroom. Your classes are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. But if you’re going to do this, you will need good computer skills and you must be able to work independently.

At Washington State you can simply take an occasional online class, or you can take all online classes and earn your degree. We offer three associate degree programs and two certificates online. Learn more:
