Alternative Assessment: High School Transcripts

English

Edmonds Community College is now offering students from all WA State School Districts placement into English courses based on a cumulative GPA of 3.0. Placement into ENGL&101 with a GPA of 3.0 applies to current high school students, Running Start students, College in the High School students, or those who have already graduated. Placement by this method expires five years after the student graduates from high school.

We also honor the WA State Placement Reciprocity Agreement. Please visit this website for more information.

For students whose English is not their first language: Please note that students with high school transcripts listing ESL course instead of standard English courses will need to place by taking the Accuplacer or LOEP placement test.

Please note: If you wish to seek placement using your high school transcripts, please bring a copy of your transcript (unofficial copies are OK) to the Testing and Assessment Services office (TAS), located in MLT Hall, room 152. High school transcripts submitted via Parchment will not be automatically given placement.  You can also send your transcripts to TAS via email. Please remember to include a copy of your picture ID in your email to TAS if you wish to seek placement.
