Academic Information and Requirements – Graduation Requirements

Enrolled students are encouraged to complete requirements for a degree or certificate. The college issues degrees and certificates each quarter; however, the commencement ceremony is held at the end of spring quarter.

A student seeking graduation at Edmonds Community College must:

  • Satisfy all college requirements, including financial obligations;
  • Satisfy the residency credit requirement of 30 credits or one third of the required credits, whichever is less, unless a specific program requires that more credits must be earned at Edmonds Community College;
  • Satisfy physical education/health requirements for these degrees: Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, and the Associate of General Studies. For the Associate of Technical Arts degree, students must successfully complete the mandatory courses listed on the program requirement sheet; and
  • Maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all Edmonds CC college-level courses.

If you are transferring credits from any of the following colleges: Everett Community College, Cascadia Community College, Shoreline Community College, or Lake Washington Institute of Technology, the 30 credit or one third required credit rule is waived.

Advanced placement credits, transfer credits, and credits granted satisfactory or pass may satisfy some graduation requirements.
