Government Accredited Online Colleges in Washington

At least five dozen different educational institutions offer college=level online courses in the state of Washington. These include community colleges, four-year universities and private for-profit institutions like Argosy University in Seattle or Devry University in Federal Way.

Only a handful of the colleges offering online classes offer complete online degree programs, however. For example, the University of Washington, the state's flagship public university, offers a handful of online courses. However, it is impossible to complete a degree at the University of Washington without enrolling in some courses at the brick-and-mortar campus in Seattle.

Many of the colleges offering online courses in Washington are technical schools. Clover Park Technical College and Bellevue Technical College, for example, offer courses in programming, information technology, and graphic design online. Some technical courses like machining and auto maintenance, however, are only offered in person.

Most community colleges in the state of Washington now offer at least some of their courses online. Online courses at community colleges often represent the best financial deal for prospective students. For example, online students at Clark College in Vancouver can attend online classes full-time for less than $3,600 per semester. By comparison, in-person students at some of the state's most expensive schools often pay $18,000 a semester or more.
