Working Together for Washington Students

Washington students have big dreams for their futures, and our state’s economy is ready for them.

Post-high school credentials have become even more essential for individuals and our state as our communities realize the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. That’s why our goal is that 70% of Washington students earn a degree, apprenticeship, certificate, or other credential after high school.

But the reality is Washington was already struggling to meet the 70% goal, and the pandemic made the situation worse. Fall 2020 postsecondary enrollment in Washington dropped 13 percent compared to the previous year, which is twice the national rate of about 7 percent.

We must take action now to ensure Washingtonians have the opportunities to earn a credential or degree.

The Path to 70%

Our state’s economy depends on students completing post-high school credentials, such as a degree, apprenticeship, or certificate. As our communities realize the full impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has become clear that such credentials are as essential as ever. Our goal remains the same: 70% of our students earn a degree, apprenticeship, certificate or other credential after high school.
