About the school
Walla Walla Community College (WWCC) is a multi-campus community college situated in Washington state, United States. It is most lately the co-winner of the 2013 and also 2014 Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence. It had been rated in the top 5 best community colleges by the Aspen Institute in 2011 earlier.
Walla Walla Community College started in 1967 when the territory saw a need for a community college. It was initially housed in the educational structure on Park St. formerly occupied by Walla Walla High School before that institution relocated to its present facility south of town.
When Walla Walla Community College became too large for this site, it bought land to the east of town close to the airport and constructed its present facilities there. Eventually, an outlet campus was developed in Clarkston, Washington, 100 miles to the east as well.
Total program cost is USD $7,200
