Peninsula College is a two-year, accredited community college in Port Angeles, Washington, USA. It is located on the beautiful Olympic Peninsula 17 miles directly across the Straits of Juan de Fuca to Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. We are listed by Lånekassen and are partnered with SONOR and Norge-Amerika Foreningen in affiliation with ANSA.
Peninsula College offers a Bachelor’s of Applied Science in Applied Management, two-year Associate degrees, one year Certificates, two-year Professional Technical degrees, an Honors Program, GAP Year, High School Completion, and Intensive English. We are also launching a new virtual fast-track Associate of Arts degree (AA Degree) that can be completed in one year online. The program is asynchronous, which means a student can study from anywhere at anytime.
Students can also work on campus up to 20 hours per week (jobs are first-come-first serve) and can apply for Optional Practical Training (one year work permit) with their student visa after successfully completing a year of full-time study. Read more about the areas of study here.
