English Language Classes: Learn English in our Intensive English Language Program (IELP), no matter your level, in order to obtain fluency or for the purpose of entering academic classes.
Lower Tuition: Our community colleges offer an excellent education at a fraction of the cost of a university. After two years of our academic classes, you can transfer to a university to complete your 4-year degree, saving tens of thousands of dollars. Learn more about how much a year of study at CCS will cost. (See here for a full explanation of costs). And the cost of living is much less than in Seattle.
Location: Spokane has a bit of everything: you can try skiing in the winter, and float on the river in the summer. There are biking trails, water falls, and plenty of parks. Spokane is the perfect size. It is a city with art events, concerts, and clubs, but with a small town feel, with good transportation, clean air, and community events. Plus, you can visit Seattle, Portland, or even Canada as a weekend trip.
Community: Both campuses have active International Clubs, as well as clubs committed to celebrating specific cultures or languages, such as the Asian Club, the Arab Culture Club, the Spanish Club, and more. The Student Government hosts films, parties, concerts, and more. If you are interested in making the most of your free time, then Community Colleges of Spokane has a lot to offer you.
Housing Options: Community Colleges of Spokane offers an outstanding homestay program, where you have a room of your own while living with an American family. Or you can find apartments close to either campus. The choice is yours.
Friendly Staff: At Community Colleges of Spokane, you will always be able to get assistance from the Global Education Department, where we are committed to making your experience in the United States everything you want it to be. We have regular chat hours if you want to talk to members of our team.
