Fall semester classes began August 20 and end December 17. Courses are offered in both online and in-person formats, depending on the content and skills being taught.

Courses that contain clinical/lab/shop components, such as nursing, cosmetology, welding, and automotive courses, are being delivered in-person with safety precautions in place.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act includes the Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund (HEERF), which provides emergency funding to colleges and universities to assist students affected by the campus disruptions caused by COVID-19.
Edgecombe Community College (ECC) received HEERF funding and established the CARES Act Emergency Grant Fund to distribute grants to eligible students who were enrolled as of May 6, 2020. These funds may be used to pay for expenses such as housing, food, technology needs, childcare, medical expenses, and other costs resulting from the campus disruption.
Funds from the CARES Act are not considered financial aid and do not affect a student’s current or future financial aid eligibility. Per guidance from the Federal Government, priority will be to given to our highest-need students as identified by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
The following eligibility criteria apply:
ECC created a formula that assists a wide range of eligible students. See the disbursement chart below.
|Enrollment Status/Level||Award Amount|
|Full-time enrollment (12 or more credits)||$800|
|3/4-time enrollment (9-11 credits)||$600|
|Half-time (6-8 credits)||$400|
|Less than half-time (1-5 credits)||$200|
ECC used the same disbursement method applied through Heartland/ECSI. An email notification was sent to each student receiving funding.
