Mercer Island, WA, October 2, 2023 - The Mercer Island School District announced today that Mercer Island High School (MIHS) will participate in the Washington Guaranteed Admissions Program (WAGAP) starting this school year.

The participation of MIHS in WAGAP creates a partnership with six Washington State public colleges and universities that will automatically admit Mercer Island students who graduate with a 3.0 grade-point average or higher and complete ALL of Washington’s College Academic Distribution Requirements (CADRs).

The six colleges and universities are:

• Central Washington University
• Eastern Washington University
• The Evergreen State College
• University of Washington Tacoma
• Washington State University
• Western Washington University

WAGAP is focused on students in the 11th and 12th grades. Through data sharing partnerships with Washington school districts and schools, the participating institutions engage with high school juniors to ready them for college and familiarize them with college admissions and high school seniors to apply through guaranteed admissions or, if not eligible, through the general admissions process.

Our MIHS counseling team will be learning more this fall about the process and then begin working with interested students.

For the 2023-24 academic year, districts and schools had to complete a signed WAGAP joint data sharing agreement and letter of support by September 30, 2023.
