TEST - EMERGENCY MESSAGE - TEST
All new students must take the placement exam unless they have taken the COMPASS within the last two years at another institution or can demonstrate on a college transcript that they have successfully completed College Level Math and English with a 2.0 or higher.
If you would like to use COMPASS scores from another college, you will need to bring those scores in a signed, sealed envelope to the Testing Office at South or ask the other college to fax them to our Testing Office at 206-934-6766. Note: Students at North Seattle and Seattle Central do not need to do this. We can look up your test scores using our shared computer system. Contact information for our Testing Office can be found here: Student Assessment Services
If you are transferring credits from another college, you will need to submit official transcripts and an evaluation request form. More information on that process and the required form can be found here: http://www.southseattle.edu/services/transcripts-grades.aspx.
The evaluation process can take 4-6 weeks depending on the number of requests received. If you would like an unofficial evaluation of your transcript, you may request that as part of your advising appointment. Be sure to bring your unofficial transcript with you to your appointment.
Please note that we can use unofficial transcripts to register you for courses, but to transfer the credits to South to earn a degree or to be able to register online in future quarter, you will need to submit an official transcript and evaluation request form.
Please call 206-934-5387 to schedule an advising or counseling appointment. We have appointments available from 8am to 4:30pm Monday through Thursday and 9am-4:30pm on Friday with some evening advising available on Mondays and Tuesdays. We offer walk-in appointments during the busy times of the quarter. Please call for the current walk-in schedule.
All new students to South need to meet with an advisor prior to registering for classes. Currently enrolled students should check in with their advisor or counselor to ensure they are successfully completing classes that meet their degree requirements.
Whenever you need us! You will want to come in during the first few weeks of the quarter (after you get settled into courses) to make a plan for the next quarter(s). Please plan ahead as advising appointments fill up quickly during peak advising times.
If you have unofficial transcripts from another college, please bring those. Otherwise, bring your questions and any degree plan created in a previous advising session. If planning to register for classes, you will need to bring a list of classes you are hoping to take.
