Advising, Registration and Payments
International students receive all immigration and academic advising from the International Student Center. Each student is assigned to a primary advisor based on the first letter of his/her last name. Please visit our webpage for complete details. Students can meet with advisors during walk-in hours, or by appointment.
While meeting with an advisor, students can discuss immigration issues, course selection, their major, long-term academic planning, and other similar issues.
Students in full-time college programs register for classes in the middle of each quarter (for example, in the middle of Fall Quarter, students will start registering for Winter Quarter). Full-time college students will register on line, and do not have to meet with an advisor.
Students taking classes in the Institute of English will register in groups before the end of the current quarter. They will choose classes with the assistance of an advisor or one of their teachers.
Paying for Classes
Students must be able to pay for classes within 7 business days of registering, so it is important that they have access to funds for tuition and fees at that time.
Seattle Central does not invoice students or send bills for tuition. Students will know how much to pay for tuition and fees once they have registered for classes.
Parents who will send money to their child for tuition and fees must send wire money directly to their son or daughter’s account. Seattle Central cannot accept wire transfers directly from parents after the student’s first quarter of attendance. Please visit our webpage for more details.
