Professional/Technical Programs

Community Colleges of Spokane provides over 100 different professional/technical programs.  If you are looking for practical training in high skill and potentially high-wage occupations, you've come to the right college.  Our students are able to earn certificates of completion and Associate in Applied Science degrees.  A complete listing of our professional/technical programs  will help you to decide what program is the best one for you.

Admission to our Professional/Technical Programs

Many students choose to study in one of our career and technical programs.  CCS offers many programs and this makes it easy to find the one that is right for you.  Applying to a program is simple and you can do it on line, by fax or email, or by mail. 

Admission to a program may require completing certain pre-requisites before entering a specific program, or have special selection procedures.  Admission into CCS does not guarantee acceptance into every program.  Refer to specific programs for the program you are interested in and contact the program director for any special requirements that program might have.  In some cases, students can take program classes when they are eligible for college-level study. 

Remember: There are waiting lists for some high demand programs, so it is important to begin the application process early.
Program Prerequisites

Program pre-requisites normally can be completed at Community Colleges of Spokane, but it may depend on specific program requirements.  If you have completed pre-requisites at another college before applying to CCS, please send your *official records (transcripts) to the Global Education Center located at Spokane Community College.  Our office address is:

Global Education Center
Community Colleges of Spokane
1810 N. Greene Street
Building 15, Room 114
Spokane, WA  99217-5499

*An official transcript is one that is in a sealed envelope from the institution and has not been opened by the student.

Transfer Possibilities

Usually a professional/technical program is designed for students who are interested in a program that provides career training, and is not intended for students who are interested in transferring to a 4-year college or university. 

However, there are some cases where it may be possible for students to earn an AAS-T degree, which allows the student to transfer to a limited number of institutions.  More information about our articulation agreements for these programs are available here.
