Online Sessions

If planning to attend classes on campus at ECC, you should plan to attend an on-campus orientation.  While we look forward to seeing each of you at one of our on-campus events, we realize that your particular circumstances may prevent you from joining us in person.

If you are unable to make it to campus during one of the face-to-face events listed above, you may complete your START@ECC session online! You’ll have access to the same valuable information that is available in our on-campus sessions, with the flexibility to complete orientation at a time and location that is convenient for you.

The online orientation is best viewed in Firefox
