How It Works

Students residing in District 509 who wish to complete a degree or certificate not offered at ECC are advised to review catalogs of participating colleges to identify a program of study and participating college where they would like to study. Students then fill out and submit a letter of intent form.

Residents of other community colleges with whom ECC has an agreement should contact their own community college to obtain a joint agreement form from that college to register for ECC courses leading to their desired certificate or degree. The student should ensure ECC has received a copy of the joint agreement form from his/her home community college by the time he/she registers to make certain the student is billed at the in-district tuition rate.
