Registration for fall semester classes at East Central College is still underway.  To accommodate new and returning students, the college will hold a special registration session Saturday, August 10, at the campus in Union.


Student services personnel in admissions, advisement, registration and financial aid will be available from 9 to 11 a.m. to assist new and returning students.  Cashier’s will also be on hand to accept payment or help students set up a payment plan.  Those departments are all located on the first floor of Buescher Hall.


Cookies Hays, vice president of student development at ECC, reminds potential students who enroll in classes at the Saturday morning session that they will need to have payment arranged by August 13 at 6 p.m. 


"Though people can still apply for financial aid for the fall semester, they will not receive authorization prior to the start of classes," said Hays.  "To hold their spot in class students can pay with cash, check or a credit card.  We also have a payment plan option to spread the cost out over several months."


Classes begin Wednesday, August 14.  Leading up to that start date, ECC’s Student Service Center on the main campus in Union – including admissions, advisement/ counseling, financial aid, and registration – will be open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Friday, August 9, from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.   


The ECC Bookstore is open Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Friday, August 9, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.  


Hays encourages new students to complete an application for admission, which can be found online at under the future students tab.  Freshman assessment testing is scheduled through August 1 3 in Union, Rolla and Sullivan.  Pre-registration for testing through Admissions is necessary.


In-district students pay just $89 per credit hour for tuition and general fees.  The rate for out-of-district students is $120 per credit hour.  Some courses also have additional lab and technology fees.


In addition to the main campus in Union, ECC also offers classes in Rolla, Sullivan, Warrenton and Washington.  For enrollment information, students can contact ECC at 636-584-6588 or .
