Established in 1970, North Seattle College provides learning opportunities for a diverse group of more than 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 four-year schools contribute to student success. The college also offers three Bachelor of Applied Science degrees -  in Application Development,  Early Childhood Education and in International Business - and all-in-the-evening Associate of Arts and Associate in Business degree programs.

Successful Transfers & Career Training

While many graduates have continued their studies at such colleges as Dartmouth and UC Berkeley, most North students transfer to the University of Washington. In fact, North 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 — earning competitive salaries and contributing to their communities.

North also provides outstanding career training in more than 60 certificate programs, including in emerging fields such as nanotechnology, sustainable and conventional energy and control technology. In addition, North helps students earn their GEDTM, learn English, enhance their basic skills and/or pursue a new skill or personal interest.
