Accessing Student Services: Current Students

South Seattle College has moved most class instruction online and through alternative remote modes to help you stay on track with your academic goals and keep our community healthy and safe in response to COVID-19.

With South Seattle College in remote operations until further notice (in response to State of Washington and Public Health - Seattle & King County requirements), the following information has been compiled to support current students in accessing student services.

Although our campus access is currently restricted, Student Services employees in financial aid, advising, the cashier’s office, etc. are working remotely and can still support you in registering and paying for spring classes, and answering your questions.  Student Services staff appreciate your patience as it may take longer to respond to your requests while working remotely.  

  • Don’t forget to register for Fall Quarter classes!  You can register for classes online at MySouth.   
  • Please keep in contact with your instructors regarding alternative/online instruction plans for your classes.  
  • During Summer, starting the week after Spring Quarter ends, our offices close at 1 pm on Fridays only. We return to normal Friday hours beginning the second Friday of September.

Please note this is not an exhaustive list, but it will be updated. If you are not finding the information you need below, please email InfoSouth@seattlecolleges.edu.

You can also connect with many resources virtually through Zoom and LiveChat, learn more here

Instructional Support Services is here to help students and employees with their questions about eLearning and online technology tools including Canvas, Google Suite for Education, LinkedIn Learning, Panapto, and Zoom.  They have also set up a Live Chat function that can be accessed at South’s eLearning site, or on Canvas. Live chat hours vary, but you can always leave a message and someone will get back to you.
