Repairs to Automotive Vehicles

If you are a South Seattle College staff, faculty or student member and are interested in having your vehicle repaired or maintained through the automotive program you can approach one of the automotive faculty members to see if the students in their class will be able to work on your vehicle. Faculty will determine if the work that needs to be done will enhance the learning experiences needed at that time. If the faculty determine that they are able to work on your vehicle, you will be required to pay the cost of the parts involved in the job.

Gifts of Automobiles & Auto Repair Equipment

In some cases the South Seattle College Automotive Technology program is willing to accept gifts of used, recent-model automobiles and related instructional equipment. Some restored vehicles are kept as educational tools; others are sold to raise money for scholarships or other purposes. Currently, the program is in need of newer vehicles with computer-controlled systems and up-to-date shop equipment, supplies and hand tools.
