Transcripts from Other Institutions

In order to be used for testing exemption, courses must be transferable and you must have earned a C (2.0) or higher. The following conditions will exempt a student from testing, but may not provide clearance for enrollment into specific English, Math or Reading classes. 

Unofficial transcripts (or photo copies) are acceptable as long as they include:

  • Your full legal name
  • Edmonds CC student ID number
  • The name of the school you attended
  • Your grades and GPA

We will NOT accept a cut and pasted version. (Meaning, please print it directly from your school’s student information system website rather than cutting and pasting it into a Word document). Please note, we will need a transcript from each school you attended.

Please note: If you wish to seek placement using your 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. Transcripts submitted via thir parties (such as Parchment or National Student Clearinhouse) 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.
