Tuition and Fees

Tuition and fees at ECC are established by the College‘s Board of trustees. Those presented here are for the 2022-23 academic year only.


Tuition is based on the total number of credit hours or instructional hours for which a student registers. ECC reserves the right, with no prior notice, to restructure tuition and fee rates

Students should also consider other expenses (meals, books, transportation, etc.), which will vary widely from student to student. Book charges for some fulltime students may be as high as $900 per semester. A student whose funds are limited must plan carefully for a workable budget. ECC recognizes that many students need financial assistance in order to attend college. To help them, the Financial Aid Office administers various types of federal and state aid. Counselors also have information and can give advice concerning employment opportunities and methods of handling personal finances.
