In an effort to help mitigate the coronavirus pandemic, Edgecombe Community College is closed to the public until further notice.
ECC 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.
The Rocky Mount campus and Tarboro campus libraries are open to current students who need access to technology. Students must have an ECC ID or a photo ID and summer schedule. The libraries and computer stations are sanitized regularly. Plexiglass partitions have been installed at the circulation area, social distancing procedures are in place, and face masks are strongly encouraged. No other in-person services are available to students in the library at this time – only computer access.
Students should enter the Rocky Mount campus library through the Barnes Building side entrance next to the student lounge. Students should use the Building C entrance facing campus to enter the Tarboro campus library.
College WiFi access spots on the Tarboro campus are the front of the Fleming Building, the front of the Cosmetic Arts Building, and behind the McIntyre Building near the student lounge. All of these areas have outdoor seating, and electrical outlets are located nearby. On the Rocky Mount campus, the parking lot adjacent to the student lounge in the Barnes Building is an access spot. Outdoor seating is available. Log into the ECCGuest network; no password is required. Aside from the Rocky Mount library hours outlined above, College facilities remain closed, so there is no restroom access. See campus maps
Also, ECC students can access WiFi at any Edgecombe County Public Schools campus parking lot. Log into the guest network; no password is required.
Additionally, this link provides information about hotspots in Tarboro and Rocky Mount.

Please email Financial Aid.
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.
