Welcome to Edgecombe Community College. We are delighted that you are interested in our college and look forward to helping you achieve your educational goals. Our diverse range of courses, programs, and support services will help you be successful.

The 2013-2014 academic year marks our 46th year of service to the residents of Edgecombe County and surrounding communities. Our first graduating class in 1969 had fewer than 30 members. In May 2013, more than 400 students received associate degrees, diplomas, and certificates during commencement exercises. An additional 120 Adult High School diplomas and GEDs were awarded.

Today, our student body comprises about 3,000 degree-seeking individuals as well as thousands more who enroll in continuing education classes. Faculty and staff are dedicated to the young men and women and adult learners who fill our classrooms. We pledge to make every effort to make your ECC experiences positive, meaningful, and relevant to your objectives.

At Edgecombe, programs are developed with an eye toward industry needs. In May 2013, the college received a national award for its efforts to prepare students to be successful in careers and the workplace. The college received the ACT Career Preparedness Award. Edgecombe was one of just four honorees that received national ACT awards.

We are very proud of this distinction. For a school like Edgecombe, which serves 13,000 people a year, to receive a national award is a highlight for all of us at the college who work hard every day to prepare students to be work-ready.

If you are interested in preparing for a rewarding career, we have more than 100 curriculum programs resulting in two-year degrees, one-year diplomas, or certificates. If you would like to get started on a four-year degree, our College Transfer program enables you to take courses that parallel those required during the first two years of study at four-year colleges or universities. We make every effort to tailor our programs and classes to meet students’ needs.

I am very proud to serve this college, and I hope that you will be proud to call Edgecombe Community College your educational home. We look forward to serving you.
