About Seattle Vocational Institute

Seattle Vocational Institute offers vocational training, basic skills education, worker training programs for the unemployed and apprenticeship programs. The campus is also fully equipped to serve students, providing everything from dental work to salon services to assistance with career and academic issues.

Part of the Seattle Community College District, Seattle Vocational Institute provides instruction in such medical, technical and industrial fields as:

  • Computer Based Accounting
  • Dental Assisting
  • Medical Assisting
  • Network Technology

Students in many programs also participate in externships, working in local facilities and offices specific to their area of study.

Additional special programs include an apprenticeship in Construction Technology. There is also the Workfirst program, designated for people who are unemployed or low income and wish to gain professional skills and re-enter the workforce.

Services on campus include those offered by cosmetology students. The school salon gives cosmetology students the chance to refine their skills, while providing salon services to the school community.

Students also have access to career resource services, including job placement assistance.

When applying for admissions, students submit an application online or in-person, meet with an advisor, attend an orientation, take an English-language assessment if needed and take a placement test to determine math, reading and writing abilities.

Financial aid comes to eligible students through many channels, including community organizations and an Opportunity Grant, all of which provide funding to low-income students. There are also Pell grants, state grants and work-study, all of which are awarded based on financial need.

Students may also apply for loans, scholarships and tuition waivers. The first step in applying for most grants, loans and work-study is to fill out a FAFSA, which can be done online. Other sources of aid are applied for individually.
