Introduction to Affiliation

Affiliation is a simple, no-cost, no-obligation arrangement between The Washington Center and your college or university. It describes your institution’s preferences concerning the credit students will receive, the handling of program fees, and the appointment of a campus liaison. Simply put, it allows TWC staff to accurately represent and implement your institution’s policies.
