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.
- 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.
