Over the Summer 


June and July 

Look for your welcome package in the mail this summer. It contains some additional information (as well as some fun stuff too) for you and your parents or guardians and family. The information will help you: 

  • Set up your Seattle Colleges account
  • Confirm your fall class schedule in your college student portal 
  • Use Starfish to make an online appointment with your Seattle Promise specialist
  • Sign up for emergency notifications 

In your package, you’ll also receive more information about Summer Bridge. Summer Bridge.


One month before fall quarter is a good time to visit your campus (if open) and schedule an appointment with your retention specialist before classes begin. 


Save the date, book time off work, and get ready for Summer Bridge: September 15 and 16. Attendance is a program requirement and will help prepare you for first quarter of college.
