Every student registered at Edmonds Community College (EdCC),  for more than zero credits, is provided with an EdMail account. EdMail accounts are made available as part of the Google Apps for Education agreement with Edmonds Community College. You can keep this same EdMail address for as long as you are a student and you will be able to access your EdMail account even after you leave the college.

EdMail is Gmail within a secure domain. It is used for official college communications from admissions, enrollment services, financial aid, emergency notifications, etc..  This ensures that students receive vital information in a timely manner.  But wait, there’s more!  EdMail gives you access to all of the tools provided by Google Apps, such as Google Docs, Sites, Groups, Calendar and more.  

Students have full control of their EdMail accounts, this means students create their own passwords for EdMail and set the criteria for password security, as well as other EdMail features.  Student Technology Advice and Resource Team (START) staff will be happy to assist students with this self service tool and EdMail, as needed.  START can also help students with USER NAME adjustments, as necessary. Visit the START office in the Library, LYN 305.
