PASCO, Wash. – Following 18 months of mostly remote operations, Columbia Basin College (CBC) has officially re-opened its campuses for in-person services, while maintaining online services for those who prefer to access resources remotely.

CBC, recently named a Top 150 U.S. Community College by the prestigious Aspen Institute, offers a wealth of resources to support student success, including: free individualized tutoring in the Academic Success Center; Career Services for the development of essential career readiness skills; “one-stop shop” support for registration, financial aid and more in Hawk Central; well-being resources to support mental health; workplace re-entry training and guidance through the Workforce Education Center; COVID-19 emergency funding for students who have experienced exceptional need due to the pandemic; and much more.

These resources were all accessed remotely by students since March of 2020, when all Washington colleges and universities were required to operate online in response to the spread of COVID-19.

CBC’s Pasco campus is located at 2600 N. 20th Ave., while CBC also operates its Richland Health Science Center and its Richland Medical Science Center near Northgate Dr. and Mansfield St. in Richland. CBC’s Pasco campus is serviced by Ben Franklin Transit’s Routes 225 and 268. CBC’s Richland campus is positioned near the Ben Franklin Transit’s Knight Street Transit Center.

Winter quarter begins January 3, and students can continue to apply through December 12 for winter quarter. Visit the college’s application page to learn more.
