Established in 1970, North Seattle Community College provides learning opportunities for a diverse group of over 14,000 students each year. North is the starting point for many students who transfer to top universities across the country. Strong academic preparation and advising services, small classes, an innovative integrated studies program, broad e-learning options and a variety of partnerships with 4-year schools contribute to student success. The College also offers a new Bachelor of Applied Science degree in International Business and all-in-the-evening Associate of Arts and Associate in Business degree programs.

While many graduates have continued their studies at such colleges as Dartmouth, Penn State and UC Berkeley, most students of North Seattle Community College transfer to the University of Washington. In fact, the college consistently ranks among the highest of all community colleges in the number of students who are accepted to the University of Washington’s main campus. And North graduates fare well — for several years, a North transfer student has won the prestigious UW President’s Medal for academic excellence. North Seattle Community College also provides outstanding career training in over 50 certificate programs.

North Seattle Community College also provides a rich student life. Concerts, plays, intercollegiate basketball, fitness programs, an award-winning literary magazine and diverse student population that includes over 600 international students from 50 countries add great depth to students’ experiences.

North Seattle Community College is located in the Northgate area of Seattle and is conveniently located near the two major north-south highways, Interstate 5 and Highway 99, and is just a short drive to downtown and the University of Washington. Largely residential, the campus neighborhood is near a large shopping district and the city’s popular Greenlake Park. The campus includes environmentally sensitive wetlands which have inspired a college-wide commitment to sustainability.
