  • In order for a student that attends another college or university to take classes at ECC over the summer they need to:
    1. Meet with the advisor at your home college to determine the proper ECC course that will transfer back to your home school.
    2. Apply for admission. 
    3. Check the course to determine what prerequisites, if any, are required for the course in which you are planning to enroll. Note: Course prerequisites must be satisfied prior to registration.
    4. Send an official or unofficial transcript from high school, current or previous college/university to satisfy any prerequisites. Official transcripts can be sent electronically by email to admissions@elgin.edu.
    5. If you are currently enrolled at another college for a class that is a prerequisite for the ECC course you want to take, include a copy of a current class schedule. A grade report or updated transcript confirming successful completion must be submitted to accessecc@elgin.edu at least two (2) weeks prior to the beginning of the summer term in order to remain enrolled in the course.
    6. Complete the Prerequisite Approval form found at: https://elgin.edu/admissions/apply/transfer-students/summer-transfer-students/.  Click on the link in item #5. Return information is on the form. 
    7. A Technical Enrollment Facilitator will contact you when the prerequisite waiver has been processed.
    8. Register for classes and make payment arrangements by the due date. Visit http://elgin.edu/payment
