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. Course sections will be offered either in-person, hybrid, virtual or purely online. The precise meaning of each of these instructional modes is available in the Schedule Book for each enrollment period. 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.
