Kitsap Sun, September 24, 2012 - Olympic College’s nursing assistant program resumes Monday after being one of several programs the college stopped offering to students in response to slashed state funding last year.
Olympic College was recently notified by students and employees that their credit card and debit card numbers were fraudulently used. In each reported case, the individuals stated their card was in their possession. The occurrences were not isolated to any one area. The college is investigating the reports and, out of caution, urging anyone that has used their credit card or debit card at Olympic College to review their statements and check with their financial institution.
The college is still determining the timing of the incidents and if credit card or debit card systems may have been compromised. The college is hiring a forensic investigator to check for a possible “hacker” break-in of its financial transaction systems. In light of the reports, the college has restricted or removed its transactions systems from the merchant internet network and will offer manual credit card and debit card machines temporarily as a precaution.

Olympic College was ranked as the top two-year college on the west coast for military veterans by Military Times Edge. Over 500 student veterans were surveyed in spring 2011 on what they consider the most important school services for vets. The factors they considered in selecting a college are: academic accreditation; central veterans’ offices; and staff knowledgeable on veterans’ issues. Results of the survey informed the magazine’s rankings of two-year colleges across the country. Eighteen colleges that offer two-year degrees in the US made the list. Olympic College was ranked fifth and was the only two-year institution from Washington State.
