WINTER QUARTER 2023 Orientation week

For the health and safety of our campus community, our orientation for new international students will be a hybrid model. The process below outlines the orientation process from your acceptance to Edmonds College to your first day of classes to better understand your student life as a Triton.

If you have not applied with our admissions team yet, please start here and follow the steps.


Our admissions team will send you instructions on how to take our Edmonds College placement tests online. If you have a qualifying English score, you may not need to take the test. You can find more information on those here. Please schedule through the website as soon as possible. The sooner you schedule a test, the sooner you can start your orientation process.


You should have received an email with details about your new student orientation confirmation and new student registration questionnaire. If you have not received this email, please email anne.richardson@edmonds.edu with your ctclink ID number. 

Online Orientation

Complete the mandatory informational sessions online before you come to campus through our online learning tool, Canvas.

Please pay close attention to each presentation in order to better understand your new student life at Edmonds College and to get you started off right! This is a self-paced orientation. We recommend that you leave at least two days to complete these materials. You will be emailed login instructions when we are able to add you to the orientation.

Vaccine Attestation

Students enrolled in in-person, on-campus classes are required to attest their vaccination status in ctclink or request an exemption before school starts. A member of our advising staff will assist you with attestation during orientation. Please remember to follow all COVID-19 safety protocols.

Note: students who received vaccines that are not on the list only need to enter the data for their first dose.
