Your Satisfaction Is Our Priority

Continuing Education at North Seattle College is dedicated to the quality of our classes, services, and instructors. If you are unsatisfied with your experience, or were unable to attend a course for reasons beyond your control, please contact us. We will do our best to provide a solution that meets your individual needs. Please email us at conted@seattlecolleges.edu.

Cancellations and Refunds

Classes may need to be canceled if enrollment is low (decision will be made 2 business days before the class is scheduled to start), due to an emergency, or if the college is officially closed due to bad weather. If a class is cancelled by Continuing Education, you will receive notification by email prior to the start date. You will receive a 100% refund in the same manner in which you paid. Refunds generally take 7 to 10 business days to complete. 

In the event that we must cancel sessions due to weather, COVID-19 or other emergency-related events beyond our control, we’ll make every effort to accommodate students. However, we cannot guarantee makeup hours for classes cancelled as a result, nor can we provide refunds.

To cancel a registration/withdraw from a class, contact the Continuing Education office by email at least two (2) business days prior to the start of class. You will be refunded 100% of the class fee. As per WAC 132F-605-030, no refunds are given for a Continuing Education class if registration is cancelled less than two (2) business days before the class starts. Some exceptions may be made on an individual basis; please contact the office by email at conted@seattlecolleges.edu.

Registration Policy

Continuing Education courses start throughout the quarter and registration is open on a continuous basis. Our classes are open to all adults 18 years of age and older, with some exceptions (see Underage Students). There is no admission procedure and you do not need to be a matriculated student to register for Continuing Education classes. 

We recommend that students register early (at least one week prior to the start of class) to reserve a spot before classes fill or to avoid class cancellation. Unfortunately, we must cancel classes with low enrollments and your registration can make the difference. We will make every attempt to notify students of any class cancellations or changes, and please check the website for the most up-to-date class information. 

Payment is required at the time of registration. When your registration has been processed, you will receive a registration confirmation email. Unless you hear otherwise, class will begin as indicated. 

It is important to have your current phone number and email address on file with us so we can communicate any class changes or cancellations with you. You can choose to opt out of all promotional emails and only receive emails directly pertaining to your class.

For help with registration, please call 206-934-3705 or email conted@seattlecolleges.edu
