The options for higher education in the Spokane area are expanding. Last Thursday was a coming of age moment for Spokane Falls Community College.
"We became the first community college in the Spokane Region to receive permission to grant an applied bachelor's degree and that was a bachelor's degree in Systems Information and Technology," said SFCC President Dr. Janet Gullickson.
For the first time. students can now receive a four year degree in IT.
"I was wondering whether or not I was going to have to continue my school elsewhere to carry on with my bachelor's, but now that they're going to be offering the bachelor's here, it's going to be very convenient," said student Shaun Moeller.
He's relieved to know he won't have to transfer to a new school such as Eastern Washington University.
"It's gonna be great because I'll already have the report with the instructors," said Moeller.
Gullickson agrees,�and said�one seamless experience should greatly enhance a student's education.
