Receive Partner Benefits

There are many benefits to working with Seattle Central College. Click on the tabs below to learn about a few of the ways we support our partners.


Approved agencies are eligible to receive quarterly commission payments in the amount of 15% of net tuition paid by the student(s) they have referred, for up to three academic quarters of registration, provided the conditions set forth in the Global Marketing Agreement (GMA) have been met.

Commission payments are processed automatically, without submission of an invoice from the agency. The information agencies provide in the student's admission application establishes the agent-student connection needed to process the commission.

Commission payment procedure

Our Finance department begins to prepare commission payment information during the third week of the quarter, after student schedules and credit hours are finalized. Commission payments are processed during the ninth week, and email notification detailing the payment are usually sent by the eleventh week. Agencies can also expect to receive their commission payment by the eleventh week.

Payments are made either by check or by wire transfer, based on the preference and banking information provided by the agency in its GMAA. Commission is paid every quarter, after the student registers, pays tuition and fees, and the time for refunds has passed. An agency will receive three separate commission payments for a student who enrolls for three quarters. All commission payments are made in U.S. dollars.

Annual bonus

Partner agencies are eligible to receive an annual bonus in addition to regular quarterly commission payments. For more information, contact

Express Mail Fee

Upon payment of the $50 application fee, Seattle Central provides one complimentary international express mailing per student to all official educational partners. Acceptance materials are sent via express mail directly to the mailing address designated on the student's admission application.

Note that if a student's admission is deferred to a future quarter or acceptance materials need to be sent a second time, documents will be sent via regular mail unless otherwise specified and paid for. A second express mail service costs $50, payable online by credit card.
