The Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) is the Washington State Government agency overseeing higher education in the state of Washington. It consists of a nine-member citizen board and an associated cabinet-level agency.[1][2]

WSAC was created on July 1, 2012, when it received the duties of the former Washington State Higher Education Coordinating Board with the passage and enactment of HB 2483.[3][4][5]
