Dates and Deadlines

South Seattle Community College

South Seattle College is on quarter system. We have four starting dates. The academic year starts in September (Fall Quarter) each year.

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. Visa processing time may differ from country to country. 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.
