ECC students are encouraged by the Office of Student Development and Counseling to “Begin With the End In Mind” so that once they complete their academic degree at ECC, they are informed and prepared to successfully make a smooth transition to a 4-year college or university. The advisor for transfer students collaborates with local colleges and universities so that ECC students will be well informed about possible academic paths. Transfer services include transfer workshops, formal opportunities to meet with admissions representatives, Transfer College Fairs for graduating students, Instant Decision Days for graduating students with admissions representatives, and trips to colleges and universities. Students may visit the advisor for transfer students in room 4122 to plan their path into their educational future. The main office may be reached at (973) 877-3350.
