Registering for fall 2017 classes is among the activities new and transfer students will participate in when East Central Community College holds an Orientation session Wednesday, June 7, on the Decatur campus.
The Orientation will be from 9 a.m. to Noon beginning in Huff Auditorium. New students can begin signing in for the session at 8:30 a.m. Those participating will be welcomed by ECCC President Dr. Billy Stewart, view a virtual campus tour, and receive information on financial aid, admissions, housing and student activities, and discipline and security. Following a tutorial on registering for classes using the college’s myEC portal, new students will move to their programs of study to be advised by faculty and register for fall classes.
Following registration, students will tour the campus. New students will be able to acquire their student IDs and parking permits while on the tour. Students should bring a photo ID and their license tag number with them to Orientation.
In order to attend the Orientation and register for fall term classes, students must complete three steps in admissions: ECCC Application for Admission (available online at www.eccc.edu); ACT or Accuplacer scores, which will be used for placement in English and mathematics courses; and high school/college transcripts. Transfer students must have all college transcripts on file before they can register for classes.
Students who have already satisfied all three steps in the admissions process will have received information from the Office of Admissions on how to register for the Orientation session on June 7.
Fall 2017 on-campus classes begin on Monday, Aug. 14.
New students who have questions about their admissions status should contact the Office of Admissions at email@example.com or 601-635-6207. For more information about the Orientation on June 7, contact Dr. Randall Lee, vice president for student services, at 601-635-6204 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
