  1. Complete both the Accuplacer English and Math assessment test.**
  2. Meet the pre-requisites for the class you intend to take (based on assessment test)

If you placed into ENGL 101, you are eligible to take a broad range of college level classes.

If you assess below ENGL 101 (for example into ENGL 099, or BRDG 115) you also will be eligible to take classes, but class offerings are more limited.

List of classes you can take based on your assessment score can be found here.

If any of the conditions pertain to you, submit your documentation to Testing Center.

Altenative Assessment

Assessment and/or placement in English and Math courses, and determining pre-requisites for other courses can be detemined through a variety of options. These include:

Students are required to bring a photo ID and unofficial copies of test results or transcript to the Testing Center. The Testing Center Staff will review the documents and determine placement. In cases where placementnis not clear based on test scores, Testing Center Staff will consult with the appropriate department and/or faculty to assist with a final determination.

This process is outlined on the Edmonds CC website under Transcript Evaluation.
