Recommended Posts

The City University of Seattle is a private nonprofit university accredited through the doctoral level. CityU is dedicated to serving the working adult and transfer student and is ranked by the U.S. News & World Report among the top for online bachelor’s degree programs and among the top online programs for veterans in the U.S.

We strive to change lives for good by offering high quality and relevant lifelong education to anyone with the desire to learn. At CityU, we value:

  • Flexibility – design and deliver programs and services to be convenient for students.
  • Accessibility – provide educational opportunities to anyone, anywhere.
  • Innovation – continually create new educational opportunities.
  • Relevance – what we teach today can be applied tomorrow.
  • Global – act local but think global.

CityU’s vision is education access worldwide via a network of partners and programs onsite and online.

The Board of Trustees approves an institutional 5-year strategic plan to guide the City University of Seattle. The Strategic Plan is a “living document” that will guide the University for the next five years. It is updated annually, serving as a road map to help the University fulfill its mission and achieve its vision. The University’s strategic plan guides operational activities, including determining annual goals and objectives for its performance. We take pride in making sure our students have everything they need to be successful at CityU. If you are a current student, the following is some information you will need and want to know during your time here.

CityU’s academic credit internships are designed to match qualified students searching for practical on-the-job training with employers in the Pacific Northwest seeking highly-motivated interns to carry out real-world projects and assignments.

Academic internships are available to undergraduates and graduate students. Before applying to an internship program, you will be required to meet with your academic advisor to review prerequisites and other qualifications. For more information about the School of Management academic credit internships, please email CityU’s internship program director, Kathy Cox.

CityU’s academic programs are designed to serve the working adult and revolve around your schedule. Our classes are built and taught by practicing professionals who understand what it takes to make it in your field. If you know where you want to go, we know how to get you there.

CityU offers students access to several financial aid programs, including grants, loans, work-study, and scholarships. Finances should never be an issue that prevents a student from earning his or her education. We are committed to helping students achieve their academic goals no matter what their economic situations are.

Scholarships are forms of aid that help students pay for educational expenses. They are typically reserved for students with special qualifications such as academic merit, pursuing a particular field of study, or demonstrated financial need. Scholarships do not need to be repaid.

CityU offers several different scholarships. To explore the scholarships we offer, please visit our scholarship webpage. Our scholarships can only be applied toward CityU tuition.

If you need a little more help to close the gap, use one of the many reputable search engines to help you find a non-CityU scholarship. You may find information about applying for scholarships at finaid.org/scholarships, or by searching FastWeb, which includes more than 500,000 scholarships worth more than $1 billion.

Furthering your career and education can be expensive. The return on investment for the vast majority is tangible in the short and long term. Recent studies show that college graduates are outperforming their peers with less education (Pew Research Center). To ensure you can invest in yourself and your career, we offer scholarships based on merit and need.

Awards are given based upon academic potential, need, and the strength of students’ applications. Students attending programs in Canada are eligible for need- and merit-based scholarships only.

Committed to educating and facilitating the placement of teachers of color in classrooms to serve our diverse communities across Washington State, the Albright School of Education at the City University of Seattle has awarded Diversity Scholarships since 2001. Diversity Scholarships are available to qualified individuals who represent the ethnic diversity of our communities.

Enactus is a nonprofit organization dedicated to growing student leaders worldwide across 1,600 campuses in 40 countries. Annually, CityU awards seven tuition scholarships to its student leaders.
