Academics

Founded in 1967, Edmonds Community College is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. ECC offers a wide variety of academic programs that include transfer degree programs, vocational programs, pre-college programs, high school completion programs, and continuing education programs. Boasting one of the biggest international community college programs in the country, the school also offers different English language programs for international students. The Prior Learning assessment (PLA) allows students to have the lessons that they have learned through life and work experiences assessed for college and elective credit.

Special partnerships with state universities allow the college to offer its students direct transfer degrees from schools such as Central Washington University and the University of Washington. Academic advisers assist students with planning their programs so that they can transfer to four-year schools as juniors.

Edmonds also offers online vocational certificates and two-year online degree programs as well as hybrid classes that combine online and classroom instruction. Four-year online degrees are also available through partnerships with Washington State University and the University of Washington. Students can also opt to participate in one of the college’s many quarter-long and short term study abroad programs.

ECC has received 12 National Science Foundation grants that have helped it develop its science and math programs. Two of the most popular majors are the associate’s degree programs in Pre-Nursing and Applied Science. They also offer Allied Health certification programs, as well as unique Materials Science Technology and Restoration Horticulture degree programs.

Unique Programs

One of the most unique programs offered is the Service-Learning program, which began in 2003. The program offers students incentives to serve the community while teaching them about civic responsibility. Through the program, students provide tens-of-thousands of hours of community service to nearly 60 partner organizations each year. Students who participate in the program may qualify for scholarships and/or academic credit. The Service Learning program has won awards from Campus Compact and the Community College National Center for Community Engagement.

Admissions

Enrollment is a six step process. Applicants will need to complete an online or paper admission form and pay the application fee. Notification of receipt and information on assessment and registration should be received within two business days of submitting the application. Most applicants will then need to take the Accuplacer assessment exams in writing, reading and math. Applicants will then need to attend orientation and meet with advisers to plan their programs and select classes. After orientation, students will be able to register online or at the Enrollment Services office. The fifth step is to pay tuition online or at Lynnwood Hall. Finally, students will need to purchase their textbooks online or from the Brier Hall bookstore and obtain their EdPass student ID cards, which will allow them to utilize all of the services available to students. Students can enroll at any time all year long, but registration deadlines vary by term.

Financial Aid

There is a wide variety of financial aid options available to students. These options include federal and state education grants, loans, work-study programs, and tuition waivers. Scholarships are available through the school as well as local, civic and community organizations. Special athletic scholarships are also available.

Students will need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in order to be considered for any type of aid. The staff at the Student Financial Services Office assists students with applications for financial aid.

Students

The student community at Edmonds is highly diverse, with a huge number of international students that come from more than 70 countries.

Students can choose to participate in the homestay program or live in one of the two state of the art residence halls. Particularly popular with international students, the college’s homestay program allows students to become members of their host families. Both residence halls offer fully furnished apartments and free parking.

All of the clubs are open to all students, except for Phi Theta Kappa, which requires members to maintain a 3.5 minimum grade point average. ECC is just 20 miles from Seattle, allowing students to easily access the city’s best attractions like the Space Needle and the Seattle Aquarium.
