Please check back as we will have an updated list of events coming soon.

For adult students


If you've been out of high school for a while, ECC knows how to help you prepare for a successful career. Our Career Development Services Office staff will help you explore career options and select a program. If you're unemployed, ECC's Workforce Development team can help you prepare for a new opportunity.

Join us at an Adult Information Session. ECC representatives will work with you to chart a course based on your work experience, any college credits you may have earned, and your interests. Learn more about the next session.

Undocumented students


Undocumented students can enroll in college using the same application as their documented peers and are eligible to apply for scholarships. If you qualify for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), you may also have a work permit, allowing you to get a job on campus. Undocumented students with questions are invited to call 847-214-6928.

College is a journey, but it doesn’t need to be intimidating. Take the next step with us! Our Admissions Office offers bilingual help. Please call 847-214-7250 for information in Spanish.
