winter QUARTER 2022 Orientation

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 admission 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.


  • High School Students: Please contact internationalhs@edmonds.edu to receive directions on how to get registered.
  • College Students: Please watch the video and answer the questions in this form to be ready to register for your first quarter of classes with Edmonds College. This is a required quiz prior to your first advising appointment to register you for your classes.

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 2 days to complete these materials. Please complete the sessions and quizzes by December 30 if you are attending the on-campus orientation or by January 3 if you are studying online from your home quarter. You will be emailed login instructions when we are able to add you to the orientation.
