  1. TECH PREP Seattle

  2. WHAT IS TECH PREP? • Tech Prep is a program that allows high school students to earn both high school and college credit at the same time • Students stay at their high school campus and take approved Tech Prep classes • The program is free and there are no “strings” attached

  3. IS THIS “REAL” COLLEGE CREDIT? • Absolutely! Seattle Community Colleges offer certificates of completion and two year degrees. Some community college credit will transfer to four-year institutions, but not always. Check with the four-year school that you wish to attend ahead of time!

  4. WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH COLLEGE CREDIT • Use it to attend Seattle Community Colleges • Transfer the credit to most other technical and community colleges in Washington • Transfer the credit to some four-year colleges • Join the military at a higher rank and pay than someone without college credit • Use it on a resume or in a portfolio to help you get a job

  5. SAVE TIME AND MONEY • Tech Prep saves you time and money. You do not pay college tuition, student fees, parking fees, or for textbooks • Save time by getting a head start on your college education. Earn college credits while in high school. • With college credits you can register for college classes ahead of those without credits. Classes fill quickly and this can give you an advantage to getting the classes you want.

  6. $AVING$ • BOOKS • The cost of books varies depending upon the type of class. In general, students can plan on spending $50 to $75.00 per class. • PARKING • Costs for parking on the main campus are as follows: • Part-Time Per Quarter $35.12 • Full-Time Per Quarter $43.90

  7. ADD IT UP… If you add up the cost of a single five-credit class the Tech Prep program saves you hundreds of dollars. EXAMPLE: Course Title: Business English Credits: 5.0 TUITION $69.13 per credit x 5 $345.65 BOOKS Gregg Reference Manual Worksheets $ 13.75 Gregg Reference Manual $ 45.50 PARKING Part-time per quarter $ 35.12 TOTAL$440.02
