DECATUR – New and transfer students planning to attend 2016 fall classes at East Central Community College are encouraged to attend one of two remaining registration sessions scheduled this summer on campus.

Prior to attending registration, students should have on file in the Office of Admissions a completed ECCC Application for Admission (available online at www.eccc.edu); ACT or COMPASS scores, which will be used for placement in English and mathematics courses; and official high school/college transcripts. Transfer students must have all college transcripts on file before they can register.

Students may arrive anytime between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. to register.

On the day of registration, students will complete their fall class schedules, have photos made for identification badges and the college yearbook, and apply for a parking decal. Students who will be applying for a parking decal should bring the license tag number of the car they will have on campus in the fall.

Students also will receive information on ECCC’s first-ever orientation course that can be completed over the summer or fall.

Students who have not taken either the ACT or COMPASS test should be prepared to take it at 8:30 a.m. on the day of registration. The cost is $20. To reserve a seat for the COMPASS, contact Ms. Mary Boulton at 601-635-6346 or email mboulton@eccc.edu.

Fall classes begin Aug. 15.
