Determine What Classes You Need

Prior to registering for classes, most students need to take an English and math placement test as part of the Admission process.

If English is your second language, you may ask to take a different version of the ACCUPLACER called LOEP.

What to Expect:

Challenging your Placement

ACCUPLACER Exceptions – Documentation is Required

You may not need to take the ACCUPLACER, or may only need to complete part of the test if you meet any of the following conditions:

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

Alternative Assessement

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

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

Please note that if the student wants AP or IB test scores and/or a transcript officially evaluated for purposes other than placement, official copies of AP or IB test scores and/or transcripts are required and a separate process is followed.  This process is outlined on the Edmonds CC website under Transcript Evaluation.

EdMail: You are required to use it! It is the way we communicate with you.

The college assigns all students EdMail (email) accounts within a couple of days after they register for their first class. Note: if you are a former student returning after time away from school, check with the Enrollment Services Office to confirm what email address we have on file for you. We use the address recorded in the Enrollment Services records. To gain access to your account, follow the steps at www.edcc.edu/edmail.
