Edmonds Community College, a Washington State community college, is accredited by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities It is governed by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges.
Edmonds Community College strengthens our diverse community by helping students access educational and career opportunities in a supportive environment that encourages success, innovation, service, and lifelong learning.
Edmonds Community College offers opportunities to integrate knowledge and skills in order to reason clearly; communicate and interact respectfully; explore critically and creatively; and act responsibly. Emphasizing these core, college-wide abilities provides a consistent educational focus that encourages students and members of the college community to develop knowledge, habits and skills for lifelong learning.
Students, who earn any of our two-year degrees or shorter-term certificates, have many opportunities across the curriculum to develop and apply college-wide abilities in preparation for their roles in an increasingly diverse, information-driven society.
Edmonds has worked on improving, better defining, and documenting its integrated planning processes since its spring 2008 Self Study. This work, led by the college’s Institutional Effectiveness Advisory Committee, has resulted in a formal, written plan that standardizes unit-level planning throughout the college. This plan, named the SIMPLE Plan (with SIMPLE standing for: Strategic, Informed, Measurable Process Leading to Effectiveness), was approved by the Board of Trustees on June 10, 2010.

See the Integrated Planning diagram that illustrates how the college's guiding principles align with one another.
It is particularly noteworthy that during a period of rising tuition, Edmonds Community College has excelled in seeking and receiving funds for scholarships and assistance for low-income students, for increasing minority, immigrant and refugee students' access to the college, and for collaborating with local high schools.
