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.
