Established in 1926, the Skagit Valley College is a community college that serves the counties of Skagit, San Juan and Island in the state of Washington.  SVC has two campuses that are located in Mount Vernon (main campus) and Oak Harbor in Washington. The school aims to expand the opportunities as well as the horizon of the students thus they offer stringent academic programs and ensure a dynamic learning experience among the students.

 SVC offers two-year associate degrees of more than 20 disciplines. Moreover, the community college also offers online courses to those out-of-district, -state or -country students.  Aside from associate degrees, the community college also offers certificate courses as well as non-credit courses and workshops to those who want to enrich their lives with new knowledge.

The tuition fee rates are governed by the Skagit Valley College Board of Trustees. The students pay a flat rate of $106 per credit hour non-inclusive of technology fees, general fee and insurances. Moreover, students are only allowed to take up to 18 credits per semester otherwise they incur overcharge fee of $96.

Since the school offers associate degrees, SVC students who wish to pursue a four-year education can apply for transfer to colleges or universities where they wish to get their bachelor’s degree. Transferring credits to other institutions can be very easy as the school is affiliated with the local four year colleges and universities in Washington.
