Sea State Educational Travel

Welcome to the Sea State program.

Sea State and Western State Colorado University have developed a partnership to provide college credit for Sea State courses. Depending on the course and location, students may earn BUAD, COM, POLS, HIST, ENVS, and SOC special topics credit while they are immersed in global coastal communities.

Once a student enrolls in a Sea State course, credit registration is available through Western Extended Studies. Upon successful completion of the course and assignments due, college credit as approved for each program is awarded.
