City University of Seattle (CityU) has been helping international students from around the world earn U.S. degrees and better their lives for over 40 years; its high-quality education is accessible to anyone.
CityU is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, a regional accrediting body approved by the U.S. Department of Education.
More than 400 students from around the world attend CityU in the United States. To fit the needs of its international students, the University offers specialized programs such as a full-time English Language Program (ELP) and a language-assisted MBA program.
Many of the University’s degree, certificate and endorsement programs are also offered completely online so students can learn from anywhere, to fit their needs.
CityU is located in downtown Seattle, just a short walk away from Seattle landmarks such as the Space Needle and Pike Place Market, and is also located near the offices of global companies such as Amazon and Microsoft. CityU’s Seattle location also makes it easily accessible by Seattle’s extensive public transportation network.
