About Us: Continuing Education at Seattle Central College

Education Reimagined

Continuing Education at Seattle Central College offers innovative classes in personal enrichment and professional development for community members. Our focus is high quality, affordable and relevant educational opportunities, designed to meet the evolving needs of our community, utilizing resources at Seattle Central College for community members.

Personal enrichment classes include hobbies, skills and interests such as languages & travel, art, music, dance, photography & writing, woodworking, DIY, food/drink, boating, fitness & health and our Senior Series. Professional development courses include business and management, marketing and communication, computer technology, healthcare career training, paralegal, teaching/education and the trades.

Instructors are experts in their fields and offer relevant real world experience as working professionals.

We are part of Seattle Central College's main campus on Capitol Hill -- one of the city's most vibrant, creative and accessible neighborhoods, just minutes from downtown and 1-2 blocks from light rail and several bus lines. Classes are also offered at satellite locations. We are located on the traditional land of the first people of Seattle, the Duwamish, past and present and honor them with our gratitude.

Many classes are available in an online format, offering the convenience and flexibility of learning remotely on your computer and at a location that you choose. You do not need to enroll in Seattle Central College as a student in an academic program -- our classes are non-credit and it's fairly quick and easy to register.

As a part of Seattle Central College, Continuing Education shares the school's vision to create a learning environment that is accessible, diverse, responsive, and innovative.
