South Seattle College is a quarter system, which means that we have four starting dates.

We strongly recommend that students apply for admission at least one month in advance of the student orientation to allow sufficient time for visa processing and to make travel arrangements, however, we suggest earlier in order to make all necessary predeparture arrangements.

Visa processing time may differ from country to country. Please check for the visa wait times for your specific city/country at Students transferring from within the U.S. may apply by the quarter start date.

The college quarterly calendar will provide other important dates and deadlines.
