Edgecombe Community College summer classes are being delivered online except for those classes and programs in health care, public safety, and skilled trades earmarked essential by Governor Roy Cooper. Whenever possible, course content in these areas also is online, with face-to-face instruction provided as needed, such as labs and clinicals.

ECC continues to be closed to the public until further notice. A majority of employees are working remotely. As the College looks to reopening in phases, efforts are underway to achieve the right balance between protecting public health and meeting our educational mission.

A special task force of faculty and staff has been assembled to help tackle the issues, concerns, and needs we have for our eventual return to campus. Committee members are working to establish a plan that will optimize teaching and learning while utilizing appropriate health protections and social distancing protocols set forth by the CDC and the NC Department of Health and Human Services.

In the meantime, plans are underway to honor ECC spring and summer graduates during a special graduation ceremony on Friday, August 7. Cap and gown pickup is planned for Thursday, July 23. To see the latest details, please visit Commencement Information.

If you have questions, please reach out to one of the contacts listed here. Students also can text questions to (252) 618-6526 to receive a reply from an ECC representative.

Please continue to monitor this page for further updates.
