University Transfer (2+2)

In the United States, most students are able to complete a traditional bachelor's degree after four years of full-time study. You can choose to spend that entire time at the same four-year institution, or you can choose to spend the first two years at a community college followed by two years at a university. After two years at Seattle Colleges, you earn an associate degree and transfer to a university to complete a bachelor's degree.


2+2 Structure

Study two years at Seattle Colleges, earn an associate degree, and then transfer to a four-year college or university for the last two years to earn your bachelor's degree.
