Summer & Fall Enrollment Now Underway

Summer & Fall Enrollment Now Underway

March 16, 2015 |

Registration is now underway for summer session and fall semester classes at East Central College.

Shelli Allen, vice president of student development, encourages anyone who is considering enrollment to contact the college as soon as possible to start the registration process since some class sections will fill quickly.

“Summer classes begin Monday, June 1,” Allen stated.  “Although applying for admission is easy and can be done online, completing the basic skills assessment and submitting financial aid information requires more time.  We encourage students to start the process now instead of waiting until May.  That way, students have time to get their classes scheduled, purchase their books and still plan for vacation and other summer activities,” she said.  “This is also the right time for students who are coming home from other colleges for the summer to pick up a couple of classes. If they talk with advisors at the institution they currently attend, summer is perfect for picking up some low-cost credits that they can transfer back.”

Allen stated that general advisors on the main campus in Union are available every weekday to meet with people individually and help them through the registration process.  She encourages new and returning students seeking more information to contact ECC at 636-584-6588.   Information is also available on the college’s website:

In addition to classes on the Union campus, ECC is offering classes this summer in Rolla, Sullivan, and Washington.

Fall Semester Registration Open

New students who plan to attend ECC in the fall should contact the college now to start the registration process.  “We gave our current students the opportunity to register early, and opened registration for new students March 23,” noted Allen.

Allen stated that all students are encouraged to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine their eligibility for financial aid.  The application is available online at  “Many of our students utilize the payment plan which allows them to spread out the cost of tuition and fees over several months,” she said.  “We also accept payment by credit card.”

“We’re proud that ECC continues to be an affordable, high-quality choice in education,” said Allen.  Tuition and general fees are just $95 per credit hour for in-district students and $130 per credit hour for those who live outside the college district.

Missouri residents age 65 or older can take advantage of ECC’s Senior Citizens Waiver.  Those citizens pay just $57 in fees for each three-credit-hour class, plus the cost of books.
