Welcome to ECC! We're glad you’re here.

Elgin Community College offers the practical, real-world education you need to transfer to a four-year school or step directly into a rewarding career. Wherever you want to go in life, we'll help you build a bright future.

ECC is the first choice for nearly one in three high school seniors in our district. Here are a few of the reasons why.

Academic Excellence

Each of our 138 degree and certificate programs is rigorous, challenging, and focused on the real world. In small classes, you’ll work with faculty who are experienced professionals and dedicated teachers. And you’ll have access to dedicated academic and wellness support professionals if you need some help along the way.

A Path to Success

ECC students transfer to top institutions, and they go on to work at Fortune 500 companies, prestigious universities, and leading businesses throughout the region. Where will your ECC education take you?

Value

An ECC education costs a fraction of what you would pay at a four-year school. In two years, you could save up to 50 percent on your college costs.

Financial Aid & Scholarships

We provide numerous options to make an ECC education even more affordable. Last year, 80 percent of students who applied for a scholarship by June received one.

A True Community

Sing in the choir, join the Gamers Club, direct a play, or join one of our 10 NJCAA sports teams–student life at ECC is vibrant and welcoming.

Ready to get started? Apply now - it’s easy, and there’s no application fee. We’re here to help, every step of the way.
