I have to miss a few class sessions. Can I pay for just the sessions that I will attend?

Are there any special requirements to take Continuing Education classes?

We make it easy for just about everyone to take our classes.

  • No transcripts and no application process necessary
  • No student visa required
  • Non-residents – register away!
  • While you do need to be 18 to take our classes, we do make exceptions. See Underage Students for more information.

Can I audit a class, or get a senior discount?

Continuing Education classes are not eligible for audit or discounts. However, you may be interested in the senior waiver, which allows seniors 60 years of age or older to enroll in state funded academic courses. Learn more here

Can I qualify for disability services when I take a Continuing Education class?

Yes. The Disability Services office at North Seattle College (NSC) provides reasonable accommodations so that qualified students with documented disabilities have an equal opportunity to participate in all of North’s programs, activities, events, and services. Learn more here
