Port Angeles

Since 1993, Western’s Huxley College on the Peninsulas has offered students the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s degree on the Olympic Peninsula.

Originally established with funding provided to retrain workers impacted by the Northwest Forest Plan and subsequent Rayioner Mill closure, today’s self-sustaining programs continue to serve the educational needs of the community of Port Angeles and surrounding Clallam County area.

Reduced Tuition starting in 2020

Washington State Legislature provided funds to reduce tuition rates and enhance access for resident undergraduate students in most four-year degree programs offered by Western on the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas. 

Aim Higher with a Washington College Grant

Through the Washington College Grant, more families are eligible for state aid.  The Grant does not need to be paid back. There is no separate application for the Washington College Grant. Completing a state (WASFA) or federal FAFSA application is the first step to accessing these funds.

Western is a military friendly university offering special tuition rates for active duty personnel, veteran tuition assistance waivers, credit for military training, and priority registration. Learn more about these services provided through Western’s Veteran Services office.
