Kirkland, Wash. – Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech), the only public institute of technology in Washington State, has created a new process to simplify the college admissions process to make it easier for students to enroll in college. The process includes three specialized admissions coaches, available during business hours, who will guide potential students through the college admissions process from beginning to end.

Individualized admissions coaching will include a case-by-case review of each student’s academic history, financial needs, and educational goals and each person will receive a personalized enrollment plan. Students will self-select their preferred method to connect with their coach, which could include email at, phone at (425) 739-8381, in-person in the West Building on the Kirkland Campus in room W203, or using an online chat feature.

“By simplifying the admissions process and developing a personalized enrollment plan for each student, we are helping people meet their educational goals faster. We are taking the lead in making the admissions process a positive and personal experience, removing barriers to education, and improving what used to be a confusing process for students,” said Ruby Hayden, LWTech vice president of student services.

Registration for Fall quarter classes, which start Sept. 26, is open now.
