History

Shoreline Community College was the brain-child of Dr. Ray W. Howard, Superintendent of the Shoreline School District. He felt that the increasing number of Washington state's high school graduates did not have adequate higher education opportunities, and in 1959 he floated the idea of a community college in Shoreline.

After several years of research and development, Shoreline Community College began operations on January 2, 1964. Dr. Howard resigned his Superintendent position to serve in the temporary position of Administrative Officer of Shoreline Community College until the college had hired its first president, William K. Ramstad.

During its first two years, evening classes were held at Shoreline High School until the college had established its permanent campus. Initial enrollment was 850 students. Through local levies and a grant from the Washington State Board of Education, the college was able to purchase land from the Boeing family, and construction of the campus began in the fall of 1964. The campus opened to students in January, 1966.
