Announcing 15% Alumni Tuition Discount

If you are one of our 60,000+ CityU alumni across the world, we are so grateful for you. I recently had the honor of ascending to interim president of CityU. I am proud of the work we are doing at CityU and my biggest joy is fostering an environment that creates more alumni throughout Washington and the world. We care deeply about our students, but we consider our greatest success to be when they walk across the graduation stage. Throughout 2021 we added several new degree offerings and more programs are being added in the year ahead. To celebrate our growth, we would like to extend a 15% tuition discount for all alumni* who choose to return for another degree at CityU. This discount is applicable for all degree programs and will be available for all alumni who return in 2022 or 2023—which coincides with our 50th anniversary. If you are interested in this opportunity, please let us know in the form on this page.

Sincerely,

Chris Bryan
Interim President
City University of Seattle

ASOE Placement Files

Placement files for Albright School of Education graduates are stored on Interfolio, an online credential file management service. If you graduated prior to 2007, you set up a placement file upon graduation. However, most school districts have moved away from this system and as a result, CityU moved all placement files to archives.

Interfolio Benefits

Interfolio provides storage for application materials including confidential and non-confidential letters of recommendation; unofficial transcripts; writing samples; test scores; and multimedia files.

Interfolio’s file management system allows you to keep your credentials up-to-date at any time, and all delivery requests are processed in one business day. Interfolio charges $19 to set up a one-year account and $6 to send out the typical application or placement file.

File Transfer Request

To request a file transfer, first set up your account with Interfolio, fill out the Credential File Transfer Request form, and submit it to CityU. Your archived file will be transferred to Interfolio within two to three weeks, and Interfolio with automatically add them to your account.
