Getting Your First EdPass


EdPass ID Cards are made in EdPass Office located in Lynnwood Hall, 2nd floor, room 214.


24 hours after your new hire papers have been completed and processed by Human Resources, come to EdPass Office to have your EdPass made. The time it takes to process new hire information can vary, so check with the EdPass Office if your information has been transmitted to our database. Please call 425.640.1143 or email EdPass@edcc.edu.

Once you information is in our database, bring your Employee Number that HR has issued you or was mailed to you and a valid Photo ID to EdPass Office.

What happens next:

Staff in EdPass Office will enter your Photo ID information, take your picture (no hats, please) and print out your card. Employee bus passes are $45 and available through payroll deduction (forms available at EdPass Office).

Getting your EdPass made takes about five minutes and your first card is good for the duration of your employment at Edmonds Community College and must be turned into the EdPass Office when you will no longer be with Edmonds Community College. This includes the ORCA/EdPass.

If electronic lock access is required, after your EdPass is made you need to go to the Security Department located on the second floor of Woodway Hall to have the card encoded.
