Student Assessment Services

Important Service Update:

From Jan. 12 through at least Friday, Jan. 28, several student services at South Seattle College are shifting to remote and virtual assistance only, including Assessment Services.  This change has been made due to significant staffing shortages that impact our ability to provide in-person services with consistency, and to help keep our campus community safe during the current COVID-19 omicron variant surge.

Virtual Operation Hours: Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
