Innovations in Creating Access To Careers in Health Care
Important update on the future of I-CATCH
Because of a lack of grant funding, the I-CATCH program is unfortunately coming to an end on Sept. 29, 2021. The grant will not provide tuition for Fall Quarter or student support after Sept. 29.
You may still continue your education at Edmonds College after September 29, and we will assist you in getting connected with the many student support services and funding sources available at Edmonds College.
For the health and safety of our community, all college offices have moved services online through July 30. We will begin offering in-person services by appointment only Aug. 2 through Sept. 3.
Employees are serving students and the community remotely during this time. Please check back for updates on this website for access to services available online, by email, or phone.
All college updates, resources, and information about COVID-19 is available at edcc.edu/coronavirus. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding.
