A great education opens the door to a bright future.

Tuition & Fees

An Unbeatable Value

Tuition at ECC is a fraction of the cost you'd pay anywhere else. You can save thousands of dollars over the price of a public or private university—and still get an outstanding education that will expand your opportunities and earning power.

Financial Aid

We can help you pay for college. Our friendly and knowledgeable financial aid professionals can connect you to grants, scholarships, federal and institutional work-study, and flexible payment plans. We encourage all eligible students to apply for financial aid that can bring your costs down even further:

  • Grants are awards that are given based on the recipient's financial needs. ECC has grants to help eligible students complete career training for in-demand health care, early childhood education, and recovery support. These grants can help with tuition,
    transportation, textbooks, materials, and more.

  • Apply today for financial assistance in various categories, such as financial need, academic and leadership excellence, career fields of study, and overcoming obstacles.

  • Earn money and gain experience by working on campus.

  • Students and parents can apply for this funding. Repayment is required based on the terms of the loan program.

  • Support is available for veterans with a Certifying Official (SCO) on campus to assist you.

  • ECC offers various programs and services to assist students in discovering financial aid opportunities both on and off campus.

  • Tuition bills and financial aid applications can be confusing. Our Financial Literacy Program offers free resources to help you navigate the options and set a budget.

Submit Your FAFSA®

We encourage you to apply for financial aid, even if you're not sure you'll qualify. On average, 80 percent of eligible students who completed an ECC Foundation scholarship application by June receive a scholarship.
