Advising Overview

Once you register at Seattle Central, we recommend that students meet with an advisor during non–registration periods (week three through seven of each quarter) to develop your academic plan.

Advising helps transfer students with their educational plans and goals. During quarterly registration periods, Seattle Central advisors can help with selecting courses and review transcripts from other schools to approve course pre–requisites that have not been officially evaluated and incorporated into a permanent record.

Mission Statement

The advising and college transfer staff are committed to collaborating with students in the development and achievement of their personal and educational goals. Through the formation of a mentoring relationship, we provide clear and comprehensive information that empowers students to become self–directed learners.
