Edmonds Career Access Program



Edmonds Career Access Program (EdCAP) is a Washington State Open Doors program operating in partnership with the Edmonds School District and Edmonds College. EdCAP provides eligible 16-21 year old students with a variety of ways to meet their educational goals.


Through EdCAP, students have the opportunity to earn: 

  • GED
  • High School Diploma issued by Edmonds School District
  • Professional-Technical Certificates
  • Associate Degrees

Key Supports provided by EdCAP:

  • free tuition, course fees, and books
  • EdCAP college and career connection courses
  • one-on-one case management and advising support
  • career exploration and skill development
  • support with next steps after graduation




Students are eligible if they meet the following criteria:

  • Do not currently have a high school diploma (GEDs are OK)
  • Currently live in Washington state
  • Are at least 16 and not yet 21 on or before Sept. 1 of the school year they wish to begin
  • Be significantly credit deficient or have a counselor recommendation stating that they are unlikely to graduate by the age of 21.
Note: Students with an active Individualized Education Plan (IEP) must be enrolled in Edmonds School District to receive support services.

Once students are eligible, they will remain eligible until:

  • They are awarded a high school diploma
  • They are awarded an associate degree
  • August of the school year in which they turn 21 (for example, a student that turns 21 in July will age out the next month, August. A student that turns 21 in September will age out the August of the next year)
