College Quest

College Quest helps high school students entering grades 10-12 prepare for and understand what it takes to succeed in college. Join us online to explore what Western has to offer. In this one-week program, students attend a college course taught by Western faculty, earning one transferrable credit. A variety of activities are scheduled with RAs, the WWU admissions team and other program staff guides to help students understand the whole college experience.

Check back with us in March 2023!
