Associate in Arts Direct Transfer Degree (AA-DTA)

  • Yelm Community Schools and South Puget Sound Community College partnered in 2020 to design the first place-based Associate of Arts Direct Transfer Degree program in the state of Washington. This innovative program was implemented in 2021 and provides students with the opportunity to complete a fully accredited AA-DTA Degree entirely on the Yelm High School campus. This program was created to level the playing field for students by removing persistent barriers to college degree attainment. By offering an AA-DTA program on the high school campus, it is now easier for students to access higher education, particularly those who may face financial or transportation challenges. We are proud to offer this innovative program in partnership with South Puget Sound Community College and are committed to providing our students with the tools and resources they need to achieve their postsecondary goals.
