November 23, 2015 | Campus News

Registration is still open for new and returning students for the spring semester at East Central College. Complete schedule of classes

The schedule contains pertinent details for every class offered through ECC for the 2016 spring semester which begins Wednesday, January 13.  This includes classes held at the main campus in Union and satellite sites in Rolla, Sullivan and Washington. Prospective students will also find a variety of classes offered online for those who need more flexibility with their schedule.

Student Services staff will be available at the main Rolla location at 500 Forum Drive Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. to assist new and returning students.  Friday hours are 8 a.m. until noon.

Christina Ayres, director of ECC sites in Rolla and Sullivan, noted that advisors at ECC’s main Rolla location will be available until 8 p.m. Wednesday, December 9.

Student Services staff at the Union campus will be available Monday through Thursday until 6 p.m. to assist new and returning students.  Shelli Allen, vice president of student development at ECC, noted that general advisors at the Union campus will also be available Saturday, December 12, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.  Enrollment Center staff will handle registrations and cashiers will be available to process payment until 2 o’clock.  Placement testing will begin at 9 a.m.

”Students can still apply for financial aid for the spring semester, but they will not receive authorization until after the holiday break,” said Allen.  “To hold their enrollment, students can pay with cash, check or credit card.  We also have a payment plan option to spread the cost out over several months.” Allen encourages prospective new students to bring their 2014 tax documents along when they visit campus to make the financial aid process easier.

Allen emphasizes the range of classes offered at the college, from basic to transfer-level.  “We have classes available in math and English which are designed to meet the needs of new students no matter what their skill level,”  Allen notes. “Students can work their way up from the basic skills through transfer classes which can be applied toward a degree at a four-year school.”

Career and technical education courses are available for students seeking employable skills with a certificate or degree from ECC in fields such as nursing, graphic design, precision machining, industrial engineering technology and culinary arts at the Union campus.
Career and technical education programs are available in Rolla for students seeking employable skills with a certificate or degree from ECC in fields such as nursing, business management/technology, and early childhood education.  ECC also has partnership programs with Rolla Technical Center and Rolla Technical Institute to offer degrees in auto technology, building construction, EMT/paramedic, radiologic technology and respiratory care.
