Textbooks and Supply Lists

Please note: When possible, we will make note of which supplies you'll need for your first session so you can make sure you're prepared to start your class. Regrettably we may need to cancel a class that does not meet minimum enrollment. We wait to make a decision 2 business days before a class starts since we often get last minute registrations. If you are unsure about whether you should purchase supplies for your class, you are welcome to contact us at conted@seattlecolleges.edu to find out whether the class looks likely to run or cancel and/or initially purchase supplies needed for the first session.

Underlined names contain links to the class specific information, supply sheet and/or textbook unless otherwise indicated.
