    What you need to apply

    • Legal first, last and middle name
    • Social security number
    • Request all official high school transcripts to be forwarded to the Admissions office for which you have applied. If you have earned your high school equivalency diploma (TASC or GED™), please bring your original certificate and test scores in to the Admissions office. Until the Admissions office is in receipt of the official high school transcripts, you will be held in an incomplete status and will not be able to register. This only applies to students wishing to matriculate into a degree or certificate program. Non-matriculated students are not required to submit transcripts for admission purposes.
    • Applicants enrolling in a major are required to take the ECC Placement Test unless you are eligible for a waiver.
