The reason why students and parents should choose South Puget Sound Community College is that students receive a lot of value for their money by attending our school. Parents save more than half in terms of tuition compared to a 4 year school and the class sizes are very small so students receive a lot of one-on-one attention from faculty. Students will study in a safe environment, receive the support and attention they need in their first two years of studying in the United States to be successful and the majority of our students transfer to Tier 1 level universities with an average grade point average of 3.7.
SPSCC offers students to earn a Direct Transfer AA and an Associate in Business at the same time for no additional cost. This means students will graduate with 2 degrees instead of one.
