Shoreline offers a wide range of international student services, including the following:
Your Shoreline degree can easily open the door to completing your bachelor's degree at a four-year university (2-year degree from Shoreline + 2 years at a university = bachelor's degree).
Many of our international students have successfully transferred to some of the most prestigious four-year institutions across the country, such as University of Washington, University of Southern California, Pennsylvania State University, and University of California - Los Angeles.
Shoreline has partnerships with about 15 universities across the U.S. to offer conditional guaranteed transfer admission. These partner universities will guarantee admission for international students who transfer from Shoreline after earning the Associate's degrees and meeting specific basic admission criteria.
Shoreline does not require TOEFL or IELTS for admission. The average size of classes ranges from 25 to 35 students. Each international student is assigned a full-time faculty academic advisor to assist them with academic plans, university transfer and future careers.
At Shoreline, international students can participate in the Early College/High School Completion Program, allowing them to complete a high school diploma and transfer to university at the same time. This program provides the opportunity for highly motivated students to get a jump start on college.
The College has approximately 10,000 students with around 750 international students from 36 countries. Although diverse, the group is small enough to allow Shoreline to maintain a caring environment, providing individual attention to each of its students.
Shoreline Community College is here to help you identify and reach your goals - from the admissions process to class registration, and from academic advising to transferring to the four-year university of your choice.
