12 ESD 105 High Schools Participating In CWU's Guaranteed Admissions Program

We are excited to share that 12 high schools in the ESD 105 have signed up to be part of Central Washington University's pilot Guaranteed Admissions program. 


The Guaranteed Admissions Pilot is a statewide effort to simplify the college admissions process and make higher education more accessible for everyone. ESD 105 Superintendent, Kevin Chase, has said of this new program, "It is very encouraging knowing that 12 high schools in ESD 105 are taking advantage of this pilot program. In our region, there are still many first generation college students who are intimidated by the college application process and decide not to apply because they don't think they will be accepted. The ability to receive guaranteed admission removes barriers for our students and their families and allows them a streamlined pathway to postsecondary education."
