ECC Launches New Service for Students
Single Stop’s “one-stop shop” model will offer a broad range of social, financial, and legal services to all ECC students.
The Single Stop office, set to open August 23 in the Student Success Center, will connect students and their families to resources that alleviate financial and personal obstacles that may prevent students from graduating.To learn more, please visit the College’s Student Success Center in the Barnes Building on the Rocky Mount campus or in the McIntyre Building on the Tarboro campus.
“We were able to bring Single Stop to Edgecombe Community College through the provision of a Federal Title III Strengthening Institutions Grant,” explains Tony Rook, dean of enrollment management at ECC.
“Single Stop and ECC share the common goal of empowering students to complete their postsecondary education and achieving their personal and professional goals thereafter. Students may receive benefits that are pivotal to keeping them in college,” he says.
Through a unique combination of technology, consulting, and institutional training, ECC’s Single Stop staff will provide students with information about which federal, state, or local benefits they are eligible to receive and will guide students through the process of applying for benefits.
