The designated service area of the College includes Washington and Morgan Counties, but a significant number of students from across southeastern Ohio and nearby counties in West Virginia also are enrolled. The College was founded in 1971 as Washington Technical Institute with its one building campus located on St. Rt. 676 in Marietta. In 1972 the name became Washington Technical College as part of a reorganization of Ohio's higher education system. In 1991, the College was re-chartered as Washington State Community College and at the same time relocated to its current campus at 710 Colegate Drive in Marietta. The Washington State campus, which opened with one building in 1991, has grown to include six structures: the Main Building, Arts & Sciences Center, Carson K. Miller Library, Center for Business and Technology, Evergreen Child Development Center, and a maintenance building. The College occupies nearly 155 acres of wooded land. In 2004, the College created a master plan for campus growth with a vision for addition of a conference center, an Appalachian arts center with an amphitheater, and a health sciences building, as well as improvements to the campus entrances and parking. The College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commisions and offers transfer programs as well as applied/technical programs in business, engineering/industrial technologies, health sciences, and public services.
