Chosen by over 16,000 students each year, including thousands of international students from around the globe, Seattle Central Community College offers a comprehensive range of educational programs and opportunities in academic transfer, career preparation, basic studies, and continuing education in a vibrant urban environment.

Seattle Central College’s breadth of programs — including two bachelor's degrees, 32 associate degrees and 45 professional certificates in 28 fields of study — prepare students for an equally diverse range of pursuits. Nearly half of the school’s students are enrolled in academic programs that offer Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees and prepare them for transfer to four–year colleges or universities. To build successful careers, about a third of their students pursue career training programs to learn marketable skills in fields such as healthcare, information technology, business, culinary arts, maritime, social and human services and more. The college also serves students with courses in basic studies, continuing education and other programs.

The true strength of Seattle Central Community College is its extraordinary teaching and learning environment. The school is recognized nationally for its dedicated and accomplished faculty, who work hard to help all students succeed.

What began as Seattle's first community college located on the outskirts of downtown in 1966 has grown into a thriving center for higher education in the heart of the city. For nearly 50 years, the college has been committed to providing accessible higher education for the residents of Seattle and surrounding areas. The school educates its students to fill jobs in a variety of fields that in turn support the dynamic and growing Seattle community. Although the college’s home is the vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle, it is global in perspective, with a thriving international program — the sixth largest in the country among community or technical colleges — that hosts more than 2,000 students from around the world.
