WSU launches new online campus

Posted: Updated:

PULLMAN, Wash.- Washington State University Monday held a virtual ribbon cutting for its new online campus.

WSU touts Global Campus as its fifth campus, the first new campus since the university established branch campuses in the Tri-Cities, Spokane and Vancouver in 1989.  

WSU President Elson Floyd says Global Campus will help the university deliver premiere educational, research and training opportunities to people across the world.

"It's our hope, our desire and ambition, and I believe we'll be able to accomplish it, to mirror exactly the course we have throughout our university in this electronic format," Floyd says.

Global Campus offers eight undergraduate degrees and several master's degrees. The online program will also hold career fairs and showcase student research.
