Have credits from another institution and interested in transfer?
As an institution committed to working adults and transfer students, CityU employs a flexible transfer policy. We want to be sure you are starting where you left off, not starting over. If you began your academic career at another university or community college you’re in good company. CityU welcomes credits transferred from other accredited colleges and universities and can assist you in ordering your official transcripts from those institutions. Once CityU receives your transcripts, we will evaluate your prior coursework and will discuss how your work will apply to our programs.
CityU also recognizes credit awarded by the American Council on Education (ACE) as well as nationally recognized, standardized testing programs such as Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), Excelsior College Examinations (EC) and DANTES.
How do I apply for the discount?
Alaska Airlines employees simply request a verification of employment letter from human resources. Turn this letter in to your advisor at time of initial registration. If you are a spouse, domestic partner, or dependent child, in addition to your sponsoring employee’s letter, your advisor will provide you with a form that the employee sponsor completes.
Are scholarships or financial aid available?
Access to education is CityU’s mission, therefore affordability is of chief importance to City University of Seattle. Alaska Airlines employees and their families are offered tuition discounts, and CityU can offer you additional assistance should you need it.
