When considering the quarter you plan to apply for admission, please note that the International Admissions Office is currently managing a high volume of applications. At this time, Admissions is processing complete applications within 15 business days (3 weeks). Applications that are submitted but are missing required documents or information may take longer than 15 business days to review. In order to avoid processing delays, check your admission application carefully. Be sure that you have provided a complete home country address, and that the name on the financial support documents matches the name of the sponsor. Finally, be sure that your bank statements are in English or have been translated into English.

Other factors that may affect your planning are visa processing times and whether an emergency visa appointment could be available to you. We encourage you to check the website for the U.S. embassy or consulate where you plan to apply for your F-1 visa to learn if or how you may be affected.

To apply for admission to Seattle Colleges, international students must submit an online application, which includes completing a questionnaire, uploading all necessary documents, and paying the required $50 application fee by debit/credit card. Admission applications can be submitted up to five quarters/15 months in advance.

Reminder: Applicants who hold a U.S. passport, green card, immigrant visa, certain non-immigrant visas, or special immigrant categories should not apply as international students. Please review our guidelines to check whether you should apply via one of our domestic Admissions Offices.
