Working adults, recent high school graduates, and others can pursue full-time or part-time study for educational or career advancement or personal enrichment. ECC offers convenient day, evening, and weekend classes and a comprehensive support system that includes counseling, tutoring, computer services, financial assistance, bilingual classes, and career planning. Developmental programs are offered to students who require remediation before taking college-level courses. The academic year is divided into two roughly 15-week semesters (fall and spring) and two summer terms. ECC also offers an embedded 10-week "late start" term within each of the fall and spring semesters, as well as a 10-meeting intersession during Winter Break. See Academic Calendar 2021-2022.
