Tuition cost per course is as follows:

All tuition includes a $20 non–refundable fee.

  • Full time fees paid by students who have been admitted to Seattle Central cannot be applied toward tuition for Self–Paced courses.
  • Self–Paced courses are not eligible for financial aid, and the courses do not meet the requirements for loan deferment purposes.


Students can register for the current quarter through the 6th week of the quarter. For specific deadlines and dates, contact the eLearning office. Any students with unpaid tuition after the 6th week of the quarter will be dropped for non-payment and cannot be added back into their course until the following quarter.

It is the student’s responsibility to check for any unpaid tuition on their account. Special exceptions will not be made after the 6th week of the quarter.


To receive a refund, a student must submit an Add/Drop Form (available from our office) or request a schedule change at the Seattle Colleges District eLearning website.

A refund of tuition can be given only during the first 30 days after the enrollment date. All supplemental materials, including the $20 registration fee, are not refundable.

Full Refund: If application for refund is made or post marked within two weeks of date of enrollment and before any lessons have been submitted, the course fee, less the $20 non-refundable fee, will be refunded.

Half Refund: If application for refund is made or post marked after the first two weeks but before 30 days from the date of enrollment, one half (50%) of the course fee, less the $20 non-refundable fee and $10 for each lesson submitted, will be refunded.

There will be no refunds after 30 days.
