At a time when Washington's higher-education budget is being slashed, some lawmakers believe a partnership with WGU could provide more access to college programs without costing the state any money. Earlier this session, the House voted 70-26 in favor of HB 1822, which would create a partnership between the state and WGU, similar to a partnership WGU established last year with the state of Indiana. The measure is now before the Senate.
Probably a smart move. The state is very low on seats in the university system and this doesn’t cost them anything other than a repricocity (sp?) agreement. WGU is already fully accredited so that makes it an even better deal.
