Partners in Higher Education

University Partners

Olympic College partners with  Washington State University, Western Washington University and others to provide advanced degree options that prepare students for careers in growing fields.

These programs provide clear pathways to four-year degrees where students receive their Associate Degree from OC then transfer to partner programs offered locally, all without having to leave Kitsap County.

Through our partnerships in higher education, OC students can make a seamless transition into nationally recognized programs without the added expense and competitive enrollment process away from Kitsap County.

Olympic Collge students have access to nationally recognized programs through our partnership with WWU on the Peninsulas at our Bremerton and Poulsbo campuses.

Brandman, which is part of the Chapman University System, has long been considered one of the top choices for active duty military and veterans who are transitioning to civilian life. Through Brandman University and Olympic College’s Early Advantage Program, students will have a seamless transition to complete their four-year degree. The Naval Base Kitsap Bangor campus ensure military personnel and their families will have direct access to advisors and support staff.
