No, it is not required, but recommended. Parking is limited on campus. If more of
our staff and students use the bus, it will reduce our campus carbon footprint.
We make new Student EdPass cards and EdPass/ORCA cards starting one week before classes
start or 24 hours after you have registered and paid for your classes. ORCA cards
will only activate for use on the first day of classes and are valid till the first
day of the next quarter.
If you have a current EdPass, bring it with you. If you do not have a current EdPass,
bring a valid Photo I.D. with you.
Contact the EdPass office right away (phone: 425.640.1143) (email: EdPass@edmonds.edu) so a hold can be put on the card till it’s found or replaced. If your lost card
is turned into the EdPass office, we will email you that your ID has been found, unless
a replacement has already been made. You can get a replacement card at the EdPass
Office; there is a $30 nonrefundable replacement fee.
Your EdPass/ORCA card can be deactivated if you drop your classes or are dropped from
your classes for any reason. Your card will also deactivate if you do not register
and pay for the new quarter's bus pass. If the card is deactivated, it could take
up to 3 business days for all the buses to reactivate. If your card deactivates, please
contact the EdPass Office (phone 425.640.1143) (email: EdPass@edmonds.edu). Please include your student ID number and ORCA number on the back of the card just
above the magnetic strip. For more information: Community Transit’s ORCA system.
Tuition and fees are considered paid when paid via cash, check, credit card, financial
aid, financial aid delay of payment, cashier delay of payment, student payment plan,
agency voucher, and EdCAP.
The College Bus Pass is good on Community Transit Busses only. The EdPass/ORCA card
can be used on other buses where ORCA is available BUT additional funds needs to be
added to the ePurse associated with your new ORCA/EdPass and can only be used to pay
a full adult fair. Contact the EdPass Office for more information at 425.640.1143
or email EdPass@edmonds.edu.
