College Spark Washington along with the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges today awarded South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) a grant of $500,000 over five years to develop a Guided Pathways program. Guided Pathways aims to support low-income students and students of color by helping community colleges develop clear paths to certificates, transfer degrees, or careers.
Washington State's first class of Direct Transfer Nursing students moves to universities
Thirteen nursing students from SPSCC are the first group of community college graduates to move directly into year four at a university with an Associate in Nursing Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) degree.
After gaining the Washington State Nursing Care Quality Assurance Commission’s full approval in April, the Nursing Program at South Puget Sound Community College took another step forward toward regaining its national accreditation.
