Evergreen Tacoma Campus Open House
Offers Guidance for Completing Bachelor’s Degree

(Tacoma, Wash.) The Evergreen State College Tacoma Campus is hosting an open house from 4-7 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12 to help prospective students chart their course to finishing their bachelor’s degree.  Recent community college graduates and mid-career adults who have started but not yet finished their bachelor’s degree are encouraged to attend.

Staff and faculty will offer information about academic programs, transfer opportunities, financial aid, student and alumni experiences, and details related to completing a bachelor’s degree at Evergreen Tacoma.  There will be an introductory session at 4:30 p.m. and additional information sessions will repeat during the course of the event.  The college is located at 1210 6th Avenue in Tacoma.  For more information, visit www.evergreen.edu/tacoma or call 253-680-3000.  Fall classes start September 24.

Prospective students who would like to have their transfer credit reviewed should bring an unofficial copy of their prior transcripts. Those who want an evaluation of their financial aid potential should bring a copy of their 2006 income tax forms.

Individuals who cannot attend the open house on September 12 can take advantage of weekly information sessions for prospective students offered on Tuesdays at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. and Wednesdays at 10 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The Evergreen State College’s Tacoma Campus offers upper division courses for students ready to begin their junior or senior year.  Evergreen offers up to two years of transfer credit for graduates of Washington community and technical colleges.  Students can earn a Bachelor of Arts degree with an area of emphasis in a wide range of fields.

“Many students have accumulated college credits over the years, sometimes from several sources, but they haven’t managed to complete their degree,” explained Evergreen Tacoma executive director Artee Young, PhD. “We will have admissions staff on hand to help people with the application and transfer process and learn more about how Evergreen Tacoma can help them reach their goals.  Many times people are much closer to finishing than they think – especially given the flexibility of Evergreen’s academic model – but they’ve been putting it off waiting for a better time. We tell them it’s best just to get started because there will never be a perfect time.  If you don’t start, you can’t finish.”
