What is my next step after applying to ECC?


Once you submit your application to ECC, it will take us 24-48 hours to process it. After your application is processed, you will receive a welcoming email with your student ID number. You will need this number to view your username and set up your AccessECC student portal account and email. You will be asked to submit your transcripts and ACT/SAT scores for an evaluation. Based on the outcome of this evaluation, you might be asked to take placement tests. Once you finish your placement tests, you will go through an Online Orientation. You will meet with an academic advisor to discuss your study plan and finally register for classes.
