Marine Main­te­nance Tech­nol­ogy Education


Skagit Val­ley Col­lege (SVC) is a pub­lic com­mu­nity col­lege, oper­at­ing under the super­vi­sion of a local Board of Trustees appointed by the gov­er­nor. The dis­trict includes Skagit, Island, and San Juan coun­ties. SVC now serves stu­dents at the Mount Ver­non Cam­pus in Mount Ver­non and at the Whid­bey Island Cam­pus in Oak Har­bor. The col­lege also oper­ates three cen­ters: the South Whid­bey Cen­ter in Clin­ton, the San Juan Cen­ter in Fri­day Har­bor, and the Busi­ness Resource Cen­ter in down­town Mount Vernon.

As a Trans­fer Degree stu­dent, you can take your first two years of col­lege at SVC and then trans­fer to a four-​year col­lege or uni­ver­sity as a junior. The grad­u­ates who go on to uni­ver­si­ties do as well or bet­ter than stu­dents who begin col­lege at four-​year schools. Or, if your goal is to retool or launch a new career, the col­lege offers Professional/​Technical degrees and cer­tifi­cates in some of today’s most in-​demand fields.

SVC keeps the class sizes small to allow per­sonal inter­ac­tion with your instruc­tors and with other stu­dents. Fac­ulty mem­bers at Skagit Val­ley Col­lege are ded­i­cated to help­ing you achieve the well-​rounded edu­ca­tion and up-​to-​date skills that you expect
