Passport Block


The Passport Block listed here is for general information only.
Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

Earning the Interstate Passport at Western Wyoming Community College meets all the requirements of Western's General Education requirements and enables students to meet all or nearly all the general education requirements at other institutions participating in the Interstate Passport Network. 

The Western Wyoming Community College Passport Block was developed in conjunction with an update to our General Education curriculum. This revision of requirements was conducted and approved by both faculty and administrative committees for implementation in the Fall of 2022. 

Approval of General Education and Passport courses is overseen by a faculty led curriculum committee. Faculty interested in approving a course for General Education and Passport must submit a proposal that demonstrates why the course is needed in the block and how Passport/General Education outcomes are addressed and assessed within the course.
