Taking a Few Summer Classes?

Applying to ECC as a summer transfer student is easy, and there’s no application fee. Here are the steps to follow for the summer semester.

  1. Confirm with your current college advisor, which ECC course is equivalent to the course you need to complete. You can also check this information by going to itransfer.org/mycreditstransfer website if you attend a college/university in Illinois.
  2. Submit the online application Make sure you have a personal email you can access as we will be sending you important enrollment information after you have applied. If you don’t have an email address you can create a Gmail account for free and follow the instructions.
  3. Check the course you are interested in To determine what prerequisite, if any are required, for the course you are intending to enroll. Search available classes Note: Prerequisites needed for the course(s) must be satisfied in order to register.
