Academic Classes: Our two colleges -- Spokane Community College and Spokane Falls Community College -- offer academic classes where you can earn an Associate of Arts degree, or where you can complete the first two years of a 2 + 2 transfer degree: two years in Spokane, then two years at a university to complete your 4-year bachelor's degree. 

No time for a TOEFL or IELTS test? Try the Duolingo English Test or DET! It is fast, inexpensive and offers results in about 48 hours.

Look at our online brochure where you can learn more about CCS and Spokane.

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.
