Academic Planning

Planning an academic program is an important part of student life at Seattle Central. We encourage students to meet with your primary advisor if they have any questions or concerns about their academic plan.

Long Range Plan

Students in the College Transfer and High School Completion Plus programs are required to complete a long-range academic plan by the time they have earned 45 college credits. The International Education Programs (IEP) Office offers group meetings each quarter to discuss academic planning and preparation of the long-range plan. Students must both attend a group meeting and make an individual  appointment with an advisor  to meet the college’s long-range plan requirement. 

The International Education Programs (IEP) Office will contact students directly if they must complete a long-range plan in the current quarter. Students who have not yet accumulated 45 credits, but would like to start their long-range plan early, are encouraged to attend the next available group meeting.

Short-Term Certificate or Professional & Technical Programs

Students in the Short-term Certificate Program are not required to complete a long-range plan. Short-Term Certificate students are encouraged to meet with an advisor if they would like to discuss program requirements, or plan coursework for the coming quarters.

Students in Professional and Technical Programs are also not required to complete a long-range plan. Questions about program requirements should be directed to the counselor of the program or to the program’s division office.
