Grays Harbor and Peninsula College Bridge Program

The Grays Harbor College and Peninsula College tribal Associate of Arts Degree Program is comprised of a unique set of courses particularly relevant to Native American communities. The curriculum is a hybrid of face-to-face courses and online courses. The courses are designed with a high degree of cultural relevance. Most students enroll for 13 credits per quarter, which are broken out as follows:

  • Two 5-credit online courses, offered through Grays Harbor.
  • One 2-credit Humanities course, taught four Saturday mornings per quarter at the Longhouse on the Evergreen campus.
  • One 1-credit Humanities course, taught four Saturday afternoons per quarter at the Longhouse on the Evergreen campus. Grays Harbor, Peninsula and Evergreen students attend this series of workshops together.
  • Online developmental education courses, available in writing and mathematics, are also offered to help students prepare for college level work.
  • Here is the three-year sequence of courses for this Associate of Arts direct transfer degree that transfers to any college or university:

* Actual courses and sequences may vary depending upon the college credits that students transfer in and the need to take pre-college English and mathematics courses.
