Getting the classes you want at the time you want them is a top priority. The secret: Register early.


“Core classes, like English and math, that are required as prerequisites for upper-level classes and graduation tend to fill quickly” said Kim Chapman, Edmonds Community College’s dean of Humanities and Social Sciences Division. “If you wait to register, you’ll be less likely to get the days and times you need and the teachers you want.”


Chapman said classes are filling quickly, but the college’s online processes make it quick and easy for students to apply and enroll. Students can apply for admission at no cost, view the winter quarter class schedule, register, and see tuition payment options – all online at edcc.edu/getstarted.


Edmonds CC offers daytime, evening, and online classes. Registration for winter quarter is now open, and classes start Wednesday, Jan. 2. Winter quarter ends March 18.
