The Washington State Legislature recently approved $54.6 million for the new, four-story Everett University Center building, as well as funding for new WSU North Puget Sound at Everett degree-completion programs in software engineering and data analytics. The 95,000 square foot building is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2017 and ready for students that fall.

“We are delighted to provide students with an array of hands-on baccalaureate programming that fits the needs of Snohomish, Skagit and Island counties,” said WSU North Puget Sound at Everett academic dean Dr. Paul Pitre. “We are bringing the best programs that WSU has to offer to Everett.”

WSU North Puget Sound at Everett currently offers degree-completion programs in electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, hospitality business management and integrated communication. WSU North Puget Sound at Everett is part of the Everett University Center, a consortium of seven universities offering more than 20 degree-completion programs from Gray Wolf Hall on the Everett Community College campus.

Washington State University provides world-class education to more than 26,000 undergraduate, graduate, and professional students statewide. Founded in 1890 in Pullman, WSU is Washington’s original land-grant university.
