The Washington State Community College Consortium for Study Abroad (WCCCSA) consists of over 16 two-year colleges in Washington State that have joined efforts to design study abroad programs specifically for community college students with the goal to offer programs that fit their degree programs and schedules at a lower cost than they might find at a four-year institution.
The following programs are currently offered by the consortium:
- London, England, Fall 2018
- Alajuela Costa Rica Summer 2018
- Morocco Summer 2018
See the WCCCSA website: http://wcccsa.com
