The best starting point is Edmonds College! From here the opportunities are endless! We are a public college, offering a high school completion program, two-year degrees for transfer to a top university, a variety of professional degrees and short term certificates, and four Bachelor of Applied Science degrees. Starting Fall 2024, our new English Language Institute (ELI) will offer four levels of English language courses designed for academic and professional preparation! Our beautiful park-like campus is located 30 minutes north of the innovative and bustling city of Seattle in a safe residential neighborhood. Edmonds provides free comprehensive support services such as tutoring, advising, career exploration, all with supportive, caring faculty whose priority is to help students succeed in the United States. We are located near the home of Boeing, Microsoft, and Amazon - leaders in STEM and business industries - and we support students exploring these fields with our state-of-the-art STEM building, Hazel Miller Hall. 


Our associate degree is the first two years of a four-year Bachelor’s degree. Your choice to go through this "2+2" program saves money while receiving top-quality student support services, academic support, and extracurricular activities of a college institution. The average class size is 20 students per instructor resulting in individualized attention. In addition,  students receive outside class support through the accessible office hours of their instructors.

Edmonds prepares students to study for any major. Listed below are some of the college’s degrees:

Associate of Arts: Accounting, Business, Anthropology, Art, Communications, Education, English, International Studies, Journalism, Music, Political Science, Psychology, Theatre Arts, Visual Communications/Multimedia, and more!

Associate of Science: Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Environmental Science, Mathematics, Pre-Medical, Pre-Nursing, Nutrition, and more!


Edmonds offers programs that are designed to prepare students for specific jobs or to improve existing skills. Students may pursue a two-year degree program or a certificate of study, taking six to nine months. Upon completion of these programs, eligible students qualify for employment in the United States.


If you want to earn your high school diploma and take college classes at the same time - this is your program. Students 16 years and older may enter this customized program. Students get a U.S. high school diploma and can potentially earn a year of college credit that transfers to a four-year university. Many credits earned in your own country will apply to this program.


We currently offer four Bachelor's of Applied Science degrees that incorporate more applied, hands-on learning, allowing students to advance their skills and abilities without following the traditional direct transfer degree pathway.

  • Advanced Manufacturing and Materials Engineering
  • Child, Youth, and Family Studies
  • Information Technology Application Development
  • Integrated Health Management; Robotics and AI (Fall 2024)
