                                                                                      B o ard o f Tr us tees
                                 We are excited to celebrate Cascadia’s 10th
                                 anniversary this year. Our first ten years have
                                 helped establish the college as a cornerstone
                                 of the community and we take an immense
                                 amount of pride in the thousands of graduates
                                 who have gone on to achieve success at 4-year
                                 colleges, in their careers, and in their lives.
                                 The sign of a quality institution is its quality
                                 students, and we have plenty. We also have
                                 excellent facilities, faculty, and staff to assist
                                 you with your academic goals and provide
                                 you with a high quality, affordable education.

Just as students grow, learn, and change, so does the college. This year will be
my first as Cascadia’s president. I come to Cascadia after serving as the Vice
President for Student Services at North Idaho College in Coeur d’Alene, ID. I
am excited about taking on this new challenge. I look forward to working with
students, faculty, and staff to continue to make Cascadia a vibrant learning
environment.

With my new position comes the responsibility of assuring the quality
education you’ll receive, building on the relationships we have with our
surrounding community, and helping the college manage its continued
growth. I hope you will use the resources we provide to learn, to further your
own goals, and to seek out an education that will help you succeed.

It is our commitment to support our students and to excite you about
Cascadia. We are dedicated to helping you think critically, learn actively,
interact in diverse and complex environments, and communicate with clarity               Cascadia
and originality.                                                                         Community College

          This degree is designed for those students who are interested in earning a two-year academic degree. This 90-credit degree is most
          often an appropriate goal for students who intend to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. The Associate in Integrated
          Studies degree is also the degree of choice for students who intend to transfer, but who are undecided about which baccalaureate
          institution they will attend. It is considered a Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) because the AIS degree is designed to satisfy most (if
          not all) of the general education requirements of most public colleges and universities in Washington State. By virtue of this
          agreement, students will generally transfer with junior standing and fulfill all or most general education requirements. It is not
          necessary to complete a degree at Cascadia to be eligible to transfer to a baccalaureate-granting college or university, but most
          baccalaureate-granting colleges and universities or programs within those colleges and universities give admission preference to
          transfer students who have completed the two-year transfer degree.
          A Global Studies Endorsement option of the AIS degree is also available to students who complete a minimum of 45 credit hours of
          Global Studies (GS) designated courses, and an additional 15 hours of service-learning, study abroad, or an internship. These hours
          may be embedded in any of the Global Studies designated courses, a stand-alone course/experience, or granted as a result of a
          student-initiated petition. Students wishing to be awarded a Global Studies Endorsement should contact an advisor.

          The Associate in Integrated Studies degree (AIS) requires at least 90 credit hours in college level courses (numbered 100 or above), a

          The Associate in Integrated Studies - Global Studies degree exists to better prepare students for the myriad of opportunities and
          challenges, academically, interpersonally, and professionally, posed by transformations within the world at large. A minimum of 45
          credit hours will be from courses designated as meeting the Global Studies designation requirements. This degree is based on the
          Associate in Integrated Studies degree framework, and therefore, it is equivalent to a Direct Transfer Degree. It is considered a
          Direct Transfer Agreement (DTA) because the AIS degree is designed to satisfy most (if not all) of the general education
          requirements of most public colleges and universities in Washington State. Students will generally transfer with junior standing and
          fulfill all or most general education requirements.

          ComplEtIoN rEquIrEmENtS
          The Global Studies AIS degree requires at least 90 credit hours in college level courses (numbered 100 or above), a minimum
          cumulative 2.0 grade point average, a minimum of 25 credits in residence at Cascadia, and completion of all of the requirements for
          this degree. Students must complete and submit an application for graduation to Enrollment Services for review and approval before
          the degree is granted. Students must include the graduation fee payment with the application form.

          Washington State University Intercollegiate College of Nursing (WSU-ICN) is a consortium whose members include Eastern
          Washington University, and Whitworth. Associate’s degree transfers to WSU-ICN are admitted through WSU, not through the
          other consortium institutions. EWU participated in the development of this agreement. Student must contact the potential transfer
          institutions regarding their choices where the degree allows for student choice in classes and are encouraged to consult an academic
          advisor.

          The Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed for students who are interested in earning a two-year academic degree.
          This degree is primarily intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university with a major in natural
          science, pre-med, engineering, or computer science. Like all Cascadia transfer degrees, the AS-T degree provides students with a
          solid foundation for future studies through the completion of a range of courses in the sciences and liberal arts. Courses are similar
          to what would typically be taken at a four-year college or university. Students selecting this degree complete a common general
          education core and then choose between two “tracks.” Track 1 is for students planning to major in biological sciences,
          environmental/resource sciences, chemistry, geology, or earth science. AS-T degree students should consult an academic advisor for
          full details.

          ComplEtIoN rEquIrEmENtS
          The Associate in Science Transfer-Track 1 degree requires at least 90 credit hours in college level courses (numbered 100 or above), a
          minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average, a minimum of 25 credits in residence at Cascadia, and completion of all of the
          requirements for this degree. Students must complete and submit an application for graduation to Enrollment Services for review
          and approval before the degree is granted. Students must include the graduation fee payment with the application form.

          The Associate in Science-Transfer (AS-T) degree is designed for students who are interested in earning a two-year academic degree.
          This degree is primarily intended for students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university with a major in natural
          science, pre-med, engineering, or computer science. Like all Cascadia transfer degrees, the AS-T degree provides students with a
          solid foundation for future studies through the completion of a range of courses in the sciences and liberal arts. Courses are similar
          to what would typically be taken at a four-year college or university. Students selecting this degree complete a common general
          education core and then choose between two “tracks.” Track 2 is for students with majors in computer science, atmospheric science,
          or physics. Track 2 also has a specific engineering portion for students planning on a major in engineering. AS-T degree students
          should consult an academic advisor for full details.

          ComplEtIoN rEquIrEmENtS
          The Associate in Science-Transfer Track 2 degree requires at least 90 credit hours in college level courses (numbered 100 or above), a
          minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average, a minimum of 25 credits in residence at Cascadia, and completion of all of the
          requirements for this degree. Students must complete and submit an application for graduation to Enrollment Services for review
          and approval before the degree is granted. Students must include the graduation fee payment with the application form.

          This degree program is applicable to students planning to prepare for various engineering majors at universities in Washington. This
          degree represents agreement regarding expanded detail for the existing Associate in Science-Transfer, Track 2 between the
          baccalaureate institutions offering engineering bachelor’s degrees and the community and technical colleges system. AS-T Degree
          students should, however, maintain careful contact with an advisor at the potential transfer institution in regard to choice in
          engineering classes. Students completing the AS-T, Track 2 degrees will, if admitted to the university, be admitted as juniors with all
          or most prerequisites for the specific engineering major completed (depending on choices made among engineering electives) and
          with lower division general education courses partially completed in a manner similar to the partial completion by freshmen-entry
          engineering students. The same 2.0 GPA requirement that applies to AS-T in general applies to these expanded pathways.
          Engineering programs are competitive and may require a higher GPA overall or a higher GPA in specific courses. Baccalaureate
          institutions will apply up to 110 quarter credits required under this agreement to the credits required in the bachelor’s degree,
          subject to institutional policy on the transfer of lower division credits.

          This degree program is applicable to students planning to prepare for various engineering majors at universities in Washington. This
          degree represents agreement regarding expanded detail for the existing Associate in Science-Transfer, Track 2 between the
          baccalaureate institutions offering engineering bachelor’s degrees and the community and technical colleges system. AS-T degree
          students should, however, maintain careful contact with an advisor at the potential transfer institution in regard to choice in
          engineering classes. Students completing the AS-T, Track 2 degrees will, if admitted to the university, be admitted as juniors with all
          or most prerequisites for the specific engineering major completed (depending on choices made among engineering electives) and
          with lower division general education courses partially completed in a manner similar to the partial completion by freshmen-entry
          engineering students. The same 2.0 GPA requirement that applies to AS-T in general applies to these expanded pathways.
          Engineering programs are competitive and may require a higher GPA overall or a higher GPA in specific courses. Baccalaureate
          institutions will apply up to 110 quarter credits required under this agreement to the credits required in the bachelor’s degree,
          subject to institutional policy on the transfer of lower division credits.

          ComplEtIoN rEquIrEmENtS
          The Associate in Science-Transfer Track 2 Engineering degree requires at least 90 credit hours in college level courses (numbered 100
          or above), a minimum cumulative 2.0 grade point average, a minimum of 25 credits in residence at Cascadia, and completion of all
          of the requirements for this degree. Students must complete and submit an application for graduation to Enrollment Services for
          review and approval before the degree is granted. Students must include the graduation fee payment with the application form.

          The renewable energy industry is a rapidly emerging field that promises a more environmentally sensitive, globally conscientious
          way of life for everyone on our planet. Governments and businesses in this state and around the world are clamoring for
          professionals who can “pioneer innovative pathways” in this relatively uncharted territory. In this exciting time, our world is
          redesigning how we consume energy; students in this program will have the chance to be a part of that as professional practitioners
          as well as in roles as informed consumers and political citizens.

          The renewable energy industry is a rapidly emerging field that promises a more environmentally sensitive, globally conscientious
          way of life for everyone on our planet. Governments and businesses in this state and around the world are clamoring for
          professionals who can “pioneer innovative pathways” in this relatively uncharted territory. In this exciting time, our world is
          redesigning how we consume energy; students in this program will have the chance to be a part of that as professional practitioners
          as well as in roles as informed consumers and political citizens.

          Web application programmers design, create, and test new applications, including applications distributed via a web server. Web
          application programmers begin their work by analyzing customer or project requirements. During development they act as skilled
          problem solvers and clear communicators. Web application programmers utilize refined logical thinking and solid design skills,
          paying close attention to detail, application usability, and security. They may use development software to write code and create
          applications for the desktop and/or web. They must be able to accurately estimate their time-on-task, manage their portion of a
          project, and clearly document their work. Many enterprise-level applications require database integration. Web application
          programmers would create multi-tier programming architectures that integrate static content and dynamic data to meet the needs
          of the user.
