Students can START@ECC by registering for one of the above dates. You only need to attend one session, and you may attend on either campus. (All sessions are the same.)  

View campus maps or get directions.

To register for an on-campus START@ECC session complete the registration form.


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 Google Chrome
