Edmonds College maintains appropriate policies to develop, approve, and implement college curriculum that meets the mission of the college and complies with all Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges policy guidelines, Washington Department of Education and US Department of Education regulations, and all accreditation standards.

The Office of the Vice President for Instruction authorizes and approves all college curricula. Faculty are responsible for the development and implementation of new degrees, certificates, programs, and courses to meet the educational needs of the community. Faculty review current curriculum annually for adherence to required standards and currency of content. The college Curriculum Committee, a contractual faculty committee, reviews all new and substantially revised curriculum and makes appropriate recommendations on the approval of that curriculum to the Vice President for Instruction. New degrees and certificates are also reviewed and approved by the Board of Trustees and follow a detailed review and approval process determined by the Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, with final approval by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.
