Wash. State taking over consortium.

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Washington State University is taking over administration of a center at Everett that offers classes through several colleges.

WSU President Elson Floyd talked about the expansion at a meeting with officials and business leaders at Everett Community College. The college has been managing the University Center of North Puget Sound, but the Legislature approved WSU administration by the summer of next year.

The center currently has about 430 students in 14 programs offered by a consortium including Western Washington University, Central Washington University and the University of Washington Bothell.

Plans call for a new building and 1,200 students by 2021.
