Catalog 2015-2016

Our Mission

To prepare students for today’s careers and tomorrow’s opportunities.


Welcome to LWTech’s online catalog! The following description explains how to access program, course, and other information.

In the online catalog, use the navigation menu to your left to explore programs of study, read detailed course descriptions and outcomes, review college policies and resources, and learn what support services are available to you.

If you are looking for program requirements: Click on Programs by Area of Study. Programs are listed alphabetically by area of study. Under each area, you will find the titles of programs and their degree or certificate options. You can learn more about the differences and similarities among the various degrees and certificates under Academic Information.

When you select a program, you will be able to read the program description and overall outcomes and review the required courses.

When you click on an individual course in the list, you will access the detailed course description.

The icon at the top of the program page that looks like a piece of paper opens a degree planning sheet that is easy to print. The degree planning sheet will help you determine what courses to take and when, so you can complete your degree and/or certificate.

If you have questions and would like help planning your program, call 425.739.8300 to be connected to an adviser.

If you want to learn more about a course or access course information sometimes needed for transfer: Click on Course Descriptions. Courses are listed alphabetically by course type (course types are very similar to the program titles). If you know the course title or prefix for a particular course, you can use the filters at the top of the page to find it.

When you select a course, you will be able to see the course title, number of credits, course description, prerequisites or corequisites, the quarters the course is offered, and the student learning outcomes for the course. Outcomes are what you will learn to do by the end of the course.

If you are looking for information about college policies and resources: Select the appropriate area that relates to your interest or concern.

If you cannot find the information you are seeking or have any questions about the online catalog, email for assistance.
