You can qualify for direct college placement by demonstrating sufficient English proficiency. This allows you to pre-register for your first quarter of classes before arriving at Seattle Colleges. We encourage eligible students to take advantage of this opportunity, as Seattle Colleges is a popular institution and classes may fill quickly.

Pre-registration is available according to the schedule below:

If you do not pre-register, you may have limited class options to choose from when you arrive in Seattle. For this reason, we encourage all students to submit official English proficiency results in advance and pre-register as early as possible.

If you qualify for a direct college placement, you will receive detailed information about the pre-registration process in your acceptance materials. Simply follow the instructions provided to submit your pre-registration request, pay your due tuition and fees by credit card online, and secure your class schedule.
