South Seattle Community College is a good local community college. They offer several types and variety of classes and programs, including 1 and 2 year certificates, 2 year degrees, worker retraining, and adult enrichment. They also offer running start and high school completion/GED. In addition, they have a great distance learning/online program! They offer several different classes via distance learning (computer) and most of them help fulfill an Associates Degree. These classes are perfect for stay home parents, those who work odd hours, etc. The teaching staff is wonderful and caring, the librarians are helpful and friendly, but the office staff leaves a bit to be desired in lack of proper attitude and very discourteous. I was especially disappointed in the financial aid office staff, as they were abbrasive and quite patronizing/condescending. If you can get past the office staff and their poor attitudes, it is an overall great school.
