International High School Completion Dual Degree Program

Begin College During High School

SPSCC offers international students the chance to earn both a high school diploma in Washington State and an associate degree at the same time through the International High School Completion Dual Degree Program.

Program Advantages

  • Earn a Washington State high school diploma and an associate degree at the same time.
  • Graduate from college at an earlier age by completing an associate degree during high school age years.
  • Gain experience in college-level coursework, which will help make the transition to a 4-year university easier to complete a bachelor's degree. 
  • Receive a customized education plan from an international student advisor.

International students are typically required to take two years (or six academic quarters) of full-time, college-level courses to fulfill the requirements for both the high school diploma and associate degree.

Our international student advisors will design an academic plan that satisfies the requirements for both a high school diploma and associate degree with each student. This educational plan will be developed after the student arrives on campus.

  • Students must be at least 16 years old when they begin classes at SPSCC.
  • Students must have completed 10th grade or equivalent.
  • Students who have already earned a high school diploma or equivalent from home country or the U.S. are not eligible.
