Transfer Admission Guarantee

International students who apply for a transfer program can receive a Transfer Admission Guarantee (TAG) letter* from up to two of our partner institutions for the final two years of their Bachelor's Degree.

Applicants who are accepted to South Seattle College will receive both an admission letter from our college and a Transfer Admission Guarantee Letter from the universities they have selected. Students can show these admission letters to the United States Embassy or Consulate to explain their study plans and obtain student visas.

Students must complete the Associate’s Degree at South Seattle College with the required GPA in order to fulfill the conditional offer. Students can select other transfer schools at time of their Seattle College graduation.

*Transfer Admission Guarantee letters offer international students conditional admission to partner institutions while Transfer Admission Pathway letters offer clear and specific guidelines about what students will need to obtain or submit in order to have the most competitive transfer admission application.
