Special Notice: Registration Changes as of Winter Quarter 2018

Beginning Winter Quarter 2018, in support of increasing student success, registration will end a week earlier than previous terms.  National research indicates that students who register on-time have higher persistence and retention rates than for students who register late.*  With this in mind, the last day to register for Winter Quarter will be January 8th.

Here are the important dates for Winter Quarter 2018 in practice at South Seattle College:

January 2nd Winter Quarter begins
January 5th Students may be administratively dropped for non-attendance at the instructor’s discretion
January 8th Last day to register
Last day to withdraw with 100% refund
Last day to add/drop without late fees being assessed
January 16th    

Last day to change audit/credit status without instructor permission
Last day to withdraw without a “W” appearing on the transcript

January 19th         

Last day to withdraw with 50% refund

If you are a dual enrollment student, please see the Seattle Central and North Seattle academic calendars, as some of their dates and permission requirements differ.


Returning Students

Beginning the 6th week of the quarter, your web registration appointment time will be ready for viewing. Returning students may check online for their registration time for the following quarter. Your registration time is determined by the total number of credits earned at South Seattle College. Credits transferred in from other institutions are not factored in. You may register on or after the designated date and time, but not before. Returning students may register online or in person at the Registration Office.

New Students

New students register for their first quarter in person or as distance learners. Beginning the 6th week of the quarter, new students may check online for their registration time for the following quarter.

Veteran Priority Registration

Washington State House Bill 1109 2013-14 requires that institutions of higher education offering an early course registration period for any segment of the student population must also offer early registration to eligible Veterans and National Guard members as follows:

  • New students who are eligible Veterans or National Guard members and who have completed all of their admission processes must be offered an early registration period.
  • Continuing and returning former students who are eligible Veterans or National Guard members and who have met current enrollment requirements must be offered early course registration among continuing students with the same level of class standing or credit as determined by the attending institution and according to institutional policies.
  • Eligible veterans or National Guard members are defined in RCW 28B.15.621.

Quarter registration dates and times can be verified online or with the Registration Office.
