"It's never too late to learn new skills, change jobs or start a career," says Jennifer McClure, managing director of enrollment services. "ECC gives you a great education at an affordable price. This information session is a great time to explore your options."

During the information session, knowledgeable ECC staff will help attendees explore degree and certificate programs; navigate the admissions process; evaluate prior college credit; understand financial aid, scholarships and payment plans; and learn about additional college resources, including tutoring, academic advising and career services.

"ECC gave me direction, a sense of purpose, and hope for not only my future, but for the future I will be able to provide my children," says recent graduate Andrea Haas.

ECC offers more than 130 degree and certificate program options that can help enhance a skill set, facilitate a career change, increase employability and support job security. Some programs of study offer night or weekend classes to accommodate students who work full time.
