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 Spring Quarter 2018 in practice at South Seattle College:

April 2nd Spring Quarter begins
April 4th Students may be administratively dropped for non-attendance at the instructor’s discretion
April 6th Last day to register
Last day to withdraw with 100% refund
Last day to add/drop without late fees being assessed
April 13th    

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

April 20th         

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.
