When you become a student at North Seattle College, you are welcomed into a supportive community focused entirely on your success. Every student is important, and every student’s needs are taken into account by the college faculty and staff. Part-time students, seniors, veterans and current members of the military, international students, non-native speakers and students with disabilities are all accommodated in North’s programs.
Advising takes steps to support students beginning with the START new student orientation. Advisors provide help with educational planning, the transfer process, and tracking your progress through to completion of your certificate or degree program.
North has been named a Military Friendly School for seven consecutive years. Veterans on campus get help with their GI bill and other educational benefits, as well as support in navigating the Veterans Affairs system and guidance on transitioning from military to civilian life. A new veterans’ lounge provides a place for veteran students to study and relax together.
Disability Services and the Gender Equity Resource Center help students succeed both in and out of the classroom. North’s Child Care Center offers help for student parents while they are in class. The Counseling office offers career counseling and thoughtful advice about managing the stresses of academic life. Undocumented students find special support at North to start or continue their education, know their rights and make use of all the resources available to them.
The Opportunity Center for Employment and Education, including Workforce Education, offers tuition support, college navigation services, help with job searches, family support services and more.
Students also get help in finding internships as part of their academic program requirements.
