Students must pay tuition by the due date or be dropped from all their classes. Tuition is due 2 weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter. After the tuition due date, students need to pay within 24 hours of registering. If a third party (i.e. non-profit agency, state agency or financial institution) is paying the student’s tuition contact the Cashier’s office at 596-5246 to avoid being dropped from your classes. Check the Tuition and Refund Policy page for more details.


The college maintains waitlists for high-demand courses to provide a fair and efficient way for students to register in full classes as space opens up. If you find a class that you are registering for is full, we suggest that you place your name on the waitlist. Putting your name on a waitlist MAY result in additional classes being opened. Many but not all classes have waitlists. Students will not be notified if they are moved from a waitlist into a class. It is the student’s responsibility to check their registration daily in order to adjust their schedule or pay tuition. Please see the Waitlist Procedures for more details.

Common Courses:

Washington's Community and Technical Colleges want to make it easier for students to transfer credits among the state's 34 community and technical colleges. We have implemented a Common Course Numbering system, which means that the same courses will be titled and numbered in a similar way at every community college in the state. Please click on the link to see the chart of new course names and numbers as compared with South Puget Sound Community College’s previous courses names and numbers. Courses that have been identified as Common Courses have an "&" sign after the course title, for example: ENGL&.
