Applying: I want to pursue a certificate or A.A.S., how do I join the program?
1. First, you must apply to the college. You must apply to the college to get a student ID number before you can move forward with other tasks. Go to Steps to Admission & Enrollment and follow Step 1. You will soon receive your Student ID number via email and you can proceed with a transcript evaluation, if applicable.
2. Transcript evaluation: If you previously attended another college or university, you are urged to submit your official transcripts to North Seattle College at your earliest opportunity. Please follow these steps to have your evaluation completed. Official evaluations can take up to three months to complete, so do not delay! This is the foundation of making an education plan and having a smooth and successful experience! Be sure you send in this form after all of your transcripts have been received!
You can monitor the status of your documents and the completion of your evaluation by logging into Degree Audit and checking "Notes" in the top right hand corner. A note will be left when all transcripts are received, again once your Application for Evaluation of Incoming Credits is received, and again once your official evaluation is complete.
3. Degree Audit: Degree Audit: Once your official evaluation is complete, log into Degree Audit to see which classes came in. In the “Select a degree” drop-down, look under ECE to see the full list of options. Now, compare this to a copy of your transcripts. (If you don’t have a copy of your transcripts, contact your previous college or university.) Check to see which classes did and did not come in. You can e-mail or meet with your advisor to see if there are any classes that did not come in but can be brought in through the Academic Exception process. Many students need an advisor’s support at this phase so be sure to reach out! If ECE classes from other local colleges were not brought in, check this course equivalency crosswalk and let an advisor know if your equivalent class is missing. This does not apply to you if you have never attended college before.
