What We Offer

What is your goal?

Transfer to a four-year college or university

Shoreline students have transferred nationwide! For Washington State, the credits for Shoreline's associate in arts degree transfer as a package to the UW and over twenty other participating baccalaureate institutions.

Our associate in science works the same way, though students will be expected to complete further general education requirements after transfer due to the amount of required courses. In either case, if you complete your associate degree, you'll transfer in with "junior" status, not as a freshman or sophomore.


Learn skills for a new or current job

"Professional/Technical" or vocational studies, provide students with specialized knowledge and skills to either prepare them to enter a particular field, or enhance existing skills while already employed.

The Workforce Education office assists many students who study these vocational programs. See if you qualify for financial assistance for these programs.
