Welcome to VIE-25!

VIE-25 is a joint project under direction of the governor’s office between the State Board of Community and Technical Colleges and the Garrison Command to support pathways to employment for transitioning service members. The schools within 25 miles of a military installation are asked to identify their already existing programs in which the first employable certificate can be completed within 6 months. Service members can then get permission from their commander and apply for an MOA to complete classes during the duty day in the 6 months prior to their ETS or retirement date.

Frequently Asked Questions


COVID-19 Update

Washington’s community and technical colleges continue to serve students, communities, and employers across Washington state. We’re just doing things differently.

Our colleges have moved a majority of services and instruction online to create social distancing and help slow the spread of COVID-19. Some VIE25 colleges do have hybrid certificate programs that have some instruction that needs to be done in person rather than online. Please check with the college of your interest to see how they are continuing with instruction.
