Policy Highlights

State Attainment Goal: At least 70% of Washington adults will have a postsecondary credential by 2023. Learn more about how states can “Set An Attainment Goal.” Also, find out more about Washington’s attainment goal and see other states’ attainment goals.

Washington created a dashboard for its public four-year institutions that includes a variety of measures —enrollment, progress, and completion. Washington also publicly reports completion data for all of its  two-year and four-year public institutions. See 50 State Table on Completion Data and learn more about how states Measure Progress.

Washington drafted a statewide policy for prior learning assessment and for transcribing PLA credit. Read more about how states Award Credit Through Prior Learning Assessment.
