We were Seattle’s first community college. We started on the outskirts of downtown in 1966, and grew into a thriving center for higher education in the heart of the city. For 50 years, we have made higher education a possibility for a wide variety of students in Seattle and surrounding areas. Although our home is Seattle’s vibrant Capitol Hill neighborhood, our perspective is global, with the nation’s sixth-largest community or technical college international program. Each year, we host more than 2,000 students from around the world.
