Service Update: ctcLink is Now Live!
Students, the new ctcLink system is now live to help you better manage your college experience. Many systems, including class registration, have transitioned to ctcLink. Learn more and activate your ctcLink account today.
Students should expect delayed responses from our offices because, much like you, we are also learning how to use and navigate the new system. Thank you for your patience during this transition and please continue to contact Student Services through Virtual Assistance.
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 happened spring quarter! Students will continue to experience a moderate to high slow-down in Registration services, including the processing of admission applications, email inquiries and transcript requests.
***Transcript Requests: All orders for transcripts must be received no later than 10:00 a.m. on Mondays.
- 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 Washington public colleges/universities. When ordering transcripts through the National Student Clearinghouse, simply select the regular mail option – we download all request and will pull those eligible for electronic transmittal.
We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience!

Transcript Requests Sent by US Mail
Due to our limited access on campus, transcripts are processed once a week only. All request received by 10:00am Monday will generally be processed the same week. As referenced above, transcripts are only electronically transmitted to public institutions within the state of Washington. No transcripts will be sent via email. 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 delaying the processing of 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.
