2021 Legislative Victories
Since 1982, the WSA has empowered students to advocate for themselves at the local, state and federal levels.
2021-22 Legislative Agenda
Join our undergraduate, graduate, and professional student efforts to increase access, affordability, and diversity to public higher education in Washington State.
Did you know that Washington owes over $24 billion in student loan debt? In the last 40 years, the WSA has been at the frontlines of college affordability!
Removal of the EdTPA
We heard you loud and clear - teacher readiness assessments are racially biased and inequitable. That's why we worked to pass HB 1028, which permanently eliminates the edTPA!
$5 Million for Undocumented Students
All students, regardless of their documentation, deserve a healthy and financially stable higher education. Students without documentation were unjustly excluded from the first rounds of federal COVID-19 aid. Our association advocated to pass HB 1368, which allocated $5 million in grants for students without documentation!
SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER
Our work depends on volunteers like you! Our volunteers have the opportunity to register students to vote, testify in the state legislature, meet with elected officials, serve on statewide boards and commissions, and much more! We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds!
A college education empowers students to create a healthy, just, and prosperous future for themselves and our state. No matter our income, race, age, or documentation, all students in Washington have the right to quality higher education without taking on a lifetime of debt. Washington is home to world-class schools whose graduates are the drivers of our economy.
By uniting across our various backgrounds and campuses, students can hold those in power accountable to making higher education debt-free and welcoming for all.
