College Degree Finder

Founded in 1941, Everett Community College (abbreviated EvCC) is a two-year community college based in Everett, Washington, just outside of Seattle. In addition to its main campus, Everett has several adult education centers located throughout the region. Altogether, EvCC’s main campus and education centers serve over 20,000 students each year (most attending the main campus in north Everett). In addition to its 20,000 students, Everett employs an academic staff of nearly 320 (110 full-time and 210 part-time).

Everett’s main campus is roughly 50 acres and has several buildings, which houses student classrooms, laboratories, administration offices and student support facilities. The campus is also home to several state-of-the-art facilities, including Shuksan Hall, an Instructional Technology Center, and the new Whitehorse hall, where all science, journalism and visual arts classes are held. The newest building on campus is Gray Wolf Hall, a center for undergraduate education. Construction on Everett’s Student Fitness Center was completed in 2011. This $20 million center was built to replace the college’s outdated gym.

EvCC offers courses through its main campus in north Everett, Corporate and Continuing Education Center in south Everrett, Aviation Technology School in Paine Field, School of Cosmetology in Marysville, East County Campus in Monroe and various other locations throughout Snohomish County.


While most students at EvCC are around 20 years old, some students are as young as 12 and other as old as 85. About 75% of students are caucasian and the rest are hispanic, black or another ethnicity. Over the last few years, enrollment has continued to grow.

One reason many students decided to attend a community college over a four-year university is cost–and this is why many students attend EvCC. The college provides a very low cost alternative to a university for those seeking to get started on a four-year bachelor’s degree. Student’s can earn a two-year “transfer” degree, and associate degree that will transfer to a four-year university. The college also provides several professional certificates, technical courses, career training and GED programs.

EvCC also offers various two-year associate degrees, including an Associate of Arts and Sciences (AAS), Associate of Science (AS), Associate in Business (AB), Associate of Applied Science (AAS), Associate of Fine Arts (AFA), and Associate of General Studies. Certificates are offered in over 35 career fields and technical disciplines. In addition to degrees and certificates, the college offers GED, ESL, and Adult Education courses. Many local business rely on Everrett for their career and corporate training needs. Through its Corporate & Continuing Education Center, Everrett povides employee, corporate and professional training to organizations throughly the Snohomish Country region.

Through a strategic relationship with the University Center of North Puget (a “center of universities”) Everett, and other local community colleges, are able to offers students and local residents the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s and/or master’s degree in over 25 fields and disciplines.
