Edmonds Community College was founded in 1967 in Lynnwood, which is about 20 miles north of Seattle, Wash. It awards associate degrees and certificates, as well as transfer degrees that can go towards continued study at the bachelor’s degree level. The school’s campus includes 28 computer labs, nine science labs, two greenhouses, a digital recording studio, an art gallery, a theater, a childcare center, and a university satellite center for Central Washington University. The school is committed to serving a diverse community of students. To that end, it is a member of Achieving the Dream, a national initiative that helps low-income students and students of color succeed in community college.
Online education provides students the opportunity to jumpstart their education, or pick up where they left off. Through Edmonds Community College’s distance learning division, students can earn college credit or complete degrees and certificates online. Depending on their past education and field of study, they may be able to complete most or even all of their college education online. Online courses are available in areas including accounting, business information technology, communications, computer science, English, history, math, and psychology. Through four-year degree partnerships with Washington State University and the University of Washington’s Extended Learning Office, students have the opportunity to continue their online studies and earn bachelor’s degrees.
Edmonds Community College has been regionally accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities since 1973.
Students can apply for admission online, in person, by downloading and printing an application, or requesting an application be mailed to them. All new applicants must submit an admission fee of $30 when they apply. Degree-seeking students and those taking math and English courses may be required to complete placement testing prior to registering for classes. There may be additional admissions requirements depending on whether you’re an international, ELS, or business and training center student, or are 16- or 17-years old and have not graduated from high school.
