Why Take The Transfer Route?

  • Your education comes first. Our dedicated instructors are focused on preparing you for success with your bachelor’s degree and future career. We also have advisors, graduation completion coaches and transfer workshops to ensure you are prepared for that next step.
  • Succeed at the next level. Students who transfer from two-year colleges like South do just as well as those who started as freshman at four-year institutions.
  • Save money. By taking the first two years of your bachelor’s degree at South, you will save thousands on the cost of your degree without sacrificing the quality of your education.
  • Transfer to the right place for you. We have Direct Transfer Agreements with nearly all four-year colleges and universities in Washington, with most of our transfer students attending the University of Washington. Other popular destinations include: Washington State University, Western Washington University, The Evergreen State College and Central Washington University. Several students also transfer to out-of-state institutions.
