Founded in 1971 as Washington Technical School, the College has grown in both size and scope of curriculum to meet the business and industry workforce needs of the Mid-Ohio Valley.

You’ll find we offer an extensive array of programs and relevant courses with on-campus, online, and hybrid delivery options to meet the needs of today's students. Washington State builds pathways that guide you toward your career.

WSCO is a student success-centered college focused on preparing you for your future. Through our adoption of Guided Pathways, we have developed strong student support programs designed to remove the barriers that stand in the way of your progress. We are intent on helping you prepare for your future, whether your goal is to launch your career, transition into a new career, or pursue a baccalaureate.

We take great pride in our low faculty-to-student ratio and our family of accomplished educators who are passionate about helping you achieve your career goals. Moreover, you will find a dynamic learning environment that challenges you and keeps you on track for your future plans.
