Covid-19 Update

Washburn Leadership has determined certain precautions will be necessary to maintain our traditional in-person classroom and campus experience in the fall semester. A new policy regarding mask requirements applies to both the Washburn University and Washburn Tech campuses. 

Your First Stop

All students look for guidance during the educational journey. At Washburn Tech, you will find that support in the Student Services Office. Located in the middle of the main hallway in Building A, our staff is ready to help. If you have questions about paying your bill, graduation or you just need someone to talk to, this is the place to turn. Stop by or make an appointment by calling 785.670.2010.

Student Support

The student experience is different for every person. Events happen in both your college life and your personal life. Some of them are expected while others might take you by surprise. We are here to help! Our Program Navigators/Advisors work with students as they traverse career training while our Campus Advocate offers a listening ear and can connect you with university and community services.

Your education can be an easier journey with good guidance and a solid plan. Together, we’ll prepare a route that takes you where you want to go. Invest in yourself at Washburn Tech. 

Program Navigators/Advisors are assigned to you based on your program of study.
