Located in the international city of Seattle

Our campus is ideally located in a quiet, safe, family residential area. Students can visit a large shopping center that is 5 minutes away or go to downtown Seattle in 15 minutes. This provides the perfect combination of a quiet, natural campus to study in but close to downtown and next to a major bus route.

NSCC has about 600 international students and over 6000 students on our campus. It is a great place to become involved in campus clubs such as the International Association or the Drama Club. The International Programs office also organizes activities for students such as camping or bowling.

NSCC has an International Student office dedicated to helping students succeed in their studies and adjusting to their life in Seattle. The office has full-time staff ready to help students with any questions or assistance that they need.

“I spent my first two years at NSCC and then transferred to the University of Washington where I graduated as a business major. I know I made the right decision in choosing NSCC as my starting point of my college life in the USA. Not only did NSCC provide me with quality education to help me succeed in my academic life, but it also supported me in overcoming the culture shock when I first arrived here. I received an excellent academic foundation and personal support. My experience was wonderful and I always refer North Seattle Community College to my friends and family.”
