Get a headstart for your college success with Everett Community College at the comfort of your home
Hello from Everett Community College! We are a two-year college located at Everett, Washington, which is only 30 minutes away from Seattle!
Founded in 1941, Everett Community College is an accredited state supported community college offering both university transfer degree (2+2) programs, vocational certificate, and associate degree programs. The primary mission of Everett Community College is to provide quality education in an atmosphere that encourages all students to achieve their educational goals. Through effective teaching and supportive student services, the college prepares students to be lifelong learners, responsible community members, and citizens in a rapidly changing world.
International students enjoy the small class sizes on a friendly and safe campus with on-campus activities bubbling throughout the year. Currently, there are 271 international students from 31 countries studying at Everett Community College.
Students from Vietnam have been attending Everett Community College for over 10 years and currently, 36 students from Vietnam are studying at Everett Community College. Our Vietnamese students are hardworking and well liked by faculty, staff and students. They have got many opportunities, including working on campus and earning as much as US$3000 per year. They have even received scholarships and are very involved with campus life and student leadership organizations. Academically, they have done very well earning above average grades and transferring to some of the top universities including the University of Washington.
Our faculty focuses on helping students succeed in the classroom and providing the support they need to reach their academic goals. Many carry the highest degree in their fields holding a doctorate degree. Our faculty’s main purpose is to teach versus in many major universities around the United States, the faculty only teach 50% of their time.
Our class size is smaller in the range of 15-30 students, so it is easier for students to focus and learn, and to develop a better relationship with faculty members. To support students’ educational goals, we have one of the largest tutoring centers in the State of Washington as well as other resources to help students succeed. According to our former student, Huy, “I believe that our school has high quality classes and selects high quality professors… so it helps me a lot to create a very good base to be ready for university, where the classes will be even harder.”

Homestay and on-campus housing experience
Students can choose to either live on or off campus. Both homestay and on-campus housing are available to students depending on their choice of living arrangements. Our Residence Halls are located on campus near the world-class fitness center that includes a gym, a training room, a climbing wall, and a running track. The fitness center also includes space for intercollegiate athletics and activities.
Affordable tuition - savings of $30,000 or higher compared to many universities
Affordability is important in a selection of a college and our educational costs are much lower at an estimate of $21,023 per academic year (9 months), which includes all of your expenses. This is a savings of $30,000 or higher compared to many universities.
Highschool completion programs

We have an excellent transfer record to 4-year universities where students complete their degrees in two more years. In order to help students succeed, there are 5 transfer fairs each year where many university representatives visit our campus in order to help students understand the transfer requirements for each school. Students can also work with their academic advisors to find out the best way to complete transfer requirements for their dream universities. Our excellent students have transferred across the USA and a short list includes the University of Washington, University of California (Los Angeles, Irvine, etc.), Stanford University, University of Oregon, University of Arizona, Art Institute of Boston, Minnesota State University, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University and University of Southern California.
Online support during Covid-19
For students who want to come to Everett, we are also monitoring SEVP updates regarding Embassy openings and visa appointment availabilities. However, even though COVID-19 has suspended travel and visa application for the time being, we highly encourage new students to begin their college career online with Everett Community College (EvCC). Studying at the comfort of home is something that may not have been in anyone’s original plan; but with the help of technology, students may not need to put their life on hold when it comes to their dreams of getting an American education.
Currently, EvCC is opening up for in-person lab courses to take place for essential workforce development programs (including healthcare, emergency services, advanced manufacturing, and transportation) while keeping social distancing measures in place to the greatest extent possible. Once travel restrictions is lifted, we will update student’s record and be ready for their arrival. Please know that the International Education office is looking forward to the day when we are opening our doors to our students again, and that we are thinking of you all during this difficult time.
We look forward to having you on the Everett Community College campus where we can help fulfill your dreams and become a successful global citizen. Hope to see you here!
