After we receive your English Placement results:

  1. Take the Math Placement Test. Follow these directions to take the Math Placement Test. When you are done, send us your score report.

    • See Direct placement into Math. If you have taken one of the accepted tests AND achieved the score listed, you can be placed directly into a math class without taking the Math Placement Test. Please submit your math score report.

  2. Submit Transcripts and Translations to internationalhs@edcc.edu If you have a high school transcript in English, please submit it with your application. (Be sure to include Grade 9, Form 3, Secondary 3, or the final year of middle school or junior high school.)

    • If you have a high school transcript, but it is not in English, please get it translated and email the translation to internationalhs@edcc.edu. (If you cannot find a translation service, you can use ASAP Translate, an online translation service.) If you do not have a high school transcript at home, you can submit it after your school reopens.

    • (Note: High school students starting summer quarter 2020 will need to submit original transcript(s) with a translation by July 20, if schools have reopened by then. Students taking only summer quarter classes and not pursuing an Edmonds diploma do not need to submit transcripts.)

    • Transcripts are due on the following dates:
      • Fall: September 7
      • Winter: December 21
      • Spring: March 22
  3. About 10 days after submitting your test scores and the New High School Student Form, you will receive your class schedule.
