Drop & Withdraw Process for Winter 2021
February 26 - Last Day to Drop/Withdraw for Winter 2021. Please complete the Winter 2021 Drop & Withdraw Form.
Remote Operations Update:
The Registration office processes general applications to the college, registers students for classes, evaluates transfer credit, directs the quarterly grading process, processes petitions for exceptions to policy and late add petitions as well as fulfills transcript request orders.
Seattle Colleges District-wide software conversion is happening February 22, 2021! There is much to do as we prepare to migrate to the new ctcLink system and all registration services are heavily impacted. Students will experience a moderate to high slow-down in Registration services, including the processing of web applications, email inquiries and transcript requests.
***Transcript Requests: All orders for transcripts must be received no later than 12:00 p.m. on Tuesday, February 10, 2021.
- Transcript service will pause as of February 10 and resume service on March 31 (Winter Quarter grades post on March 30).
- Regardless of order method, transcripts are sent US Standard mail; the United States Postal Service (USPS) has temporarily suspended delivery to several countries. The notice can be viewed here. South does not track delivery and the USPS delivery time and quality standards cannot be guaranteed.
- Electronic transmittal is limited to select Washington colleges/universities. When ordering transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse, simply select the regular mail option – we download all request and will pull those to the select Washington colleges/universities for electronical transmittal.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we covert to a new software program that will dramatically improve our services. Please watch your email and Canvas accounts for district-wide messages about the software conversion happening Winter Quarter!

Transcript Requests Sent by US Mail
Due to our limited access on campus, we currently only process transcripts once a week on Wednesday. All request received by Sunday will generally be processed the same week. Additionally, we have very limited ability to send transcripts electronically and only with a small number of institutions within the state of Washington; if we are able to we will process your request electronically, otherwise all transcripts are sent via US Mail with no tracking option.
The most efficient way to order your transcript is through the National Clearinghouse. If you choose to submit your payment through South, there may delays in processing payment thus holding up the timeliness of mailing your transcript. Click here to order from National Clearinghouse.
For more information see our Transcripts webpage.
Transcripts Sent via US Mail for Evaluation
If you sent a transcript for evaluation via US Mail that would have reached our offices after March 10, only a few of those mails were received before the college move to fully remote operations and US Mail began to be held. If you submitted a transcript for evaluation using US Mail and have not received confirmation of that evaluation, email SEvaluations@seattlecolleges.edu to make alternative arrangements.
