Unique transfer program with CCS...Destination EWU, CCS, transfer progam

CHENEY, Wash. - Community Colleges of Spokane and Eastern Washington University have created the state's first collaborative dual admission program - CCS Destination Eastern - to produce more degrees and boost graduation rates without raising costs for students and their families.

"Higher education should be accessible to students from all walks of life," said EWU President Rodolfo Arévalo. "Our strong partnership with the Community Colleges of Spokane will create a clear roadmap for students as they work toward a baccalaureate degree."

Janet Gullickson, interim CCS Academic Services Officer, added, "A true partnership between universities and community colleges is the only way to make the best use of limited resources. Ultimately, it's going to make it easier for CCS students to graduate on time with the EWU degree they want."

Two free orientations are open to students who have applied to Spokane Community College, Spokane Falls Community College or an Institute for Extended Learning education center, tested at college-level reading and writing and indicated transfer intent:

Spokane Community College: 6-8 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, Lair-Student Center, Bldg. 6, 1810 N. Greene St.
Spokane Falls Community College: 6-8 p.m. Thursday, May 10, SUB Lounges A and B, Bldg. 17, 3410 W. Fort George Wright Drive

Pre-registration is required at www.ccs.spokane.edu/CCSDestinationOrientation.

Focused on joint advising, increased retention and degree planning, CCS Destination Eastern gives students enrolled at SCC, SFCC or an IEL education center the opportunity to plan their EWU bachelor's degree from the day they are accepted at their community college. It is the first such program between a four-year university and community college system in the state. If successful, the program may be expanded to additional community colleges and four-year schools.

Students apply for admission at SCC, SFCC or an IEL education center. Once they have completed their associate's degree at a CCS school, CCS Destination students transfer to EWU, registering as incoming juniors ahead of other transfer students.

Students begin the program by taking a class team-taught by CCS and EWU faculty and counselors that covers degree planning, college readiness, career planning and college networking. They also receive degree and program advising from CCS and EWU advisors, can get free quarterly transcript evaluations at Eastern and are connected with the department they've chosen for a major at EWU.
