Shoreline Community College welcomes transfers from Art Institute of Seattle

Fine arts at Shoreline Community College

Wednesday afternoon, the Art Institute of Seattle (AI Seattle) informed the Washington Student Achievement Council (WSAC) that it will close abruptly — two weeks before the end of the winter quarter — on Friday March 8.

About 650 students are currently enrolled at the Art Institute, which has been educating students in Seattle since 1946.

“We strongly disagree with the decision to close before this quarter is over,” says WSAC Deputy Director Don Bennett, who said the decision was “deeply troubling and disappointing.” “It’s incredibly frustrating and distressing to students and it completely disrupts their education.”

WSAC will hold two previously planned information fairs on March 12 and 13 with about 30 colleges and universities participating. These schools will have information about transferring credits, graduation requirements, and teach-out options. Details HERE

Locally, Shoreline Community College wants AI Seattle students to know that it has resources for them (and other art) students.

Shoreline Community College welcomes all students, and particularly those impacted by the closure of the Art Institute of Seattle.

“We understand that students impacted by this sudden closure may be experiencing a range of difficult emotions,” said Nancy Dick, Dean of Humanities. “Our faculty and support services are ready to aid students through this transition so that they can complete their studies and pursue their passion for arts at Shoreline.”


With highly regarded degrees and certificates in Film, Music Technology, and Visual Arts, the college offers dedicated one-on-one advising to plan a smooth transfer of credits.

Classes are taught by award-winning industry professionals with deep knowledge, experience, and connections in their field. Students have opportunities to showcase their work in performances, galleries, and exhibitions.


Interested students are encouraged to attend the Arts, Film and Music Info Session on Tuesday, March 19, 2019 at 4:00pm at Shoreline Community College 16101 Greenwood Avenue N., Room 9208, Shoreline. Program faculty and advisors will be available to guide students through transfer options and provide tours of our state-of-the-art facilities and beautiful campus.

Shoreline Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

Spring quarter classes begin April 3 and registration for all students is open now. Contact SCC to speak to an advisor or faculty in your program of study.
