Heritage University

Provided by

Heritage University, located in Toppenish, Washington on the Yakama Indian Reservation, offers associate's, bachelor's, and master's degrees in a number of academic disciplines, including:

Founded in 1907 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary as Holy Names College in Spokane, Washington, the institution subsequently changed its name to Fort Wright College. In 1982, Fort Wright College moved its administration to Toppenish and was renamed Heritage College, which operated there and in Omak, while maintaining the Spokane campus. Five years later, the Spokane campus was closed.

Since 1993, Heritage College has had a program whereby holders of associate's degrees from Big Bend Community College in Moses Lake can apply their credits to a Heritage bachelor's degree.

A fire which started on July 8, 2012 destroyed the university's oldest building, Petrie Hall.[dead link]
