“Wasn’t there another Experimental College in Seattle, years ago?”

  • There have been several EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGES around the United States, and two in Seattle.
  • Seattle’s first Experimental College was established in 1968.  When it closed down, the current EXPERIMENTAL COLLEGE was established to carry on the tradition of offering affordable classes for the general community. 

“Is the new EC affiliated with the University of Washington?”

We do hold some classes on the U.W. campus (Seattle branch).  But we are not a part of the U.W. or affiliated with them.
