New and transfer students planning to attend East Central Community College in fall 2021 can now take advantage of weekday “Walk-In” Orientation sessions on the Decatur campus. Walk-In Orientation is available Mondays through Thursdays from either 8:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The college will be closed on Monday, July 5, for the Independence Day holiday. Fall 2021 classes begin on Monday, Aug. 16.
Students attending a Walk-In Orientation should first go to the Admissions Office in the Smith Student Union Building to obtain their log-in information and Orientation agenda. Students will then go to the Success Center in the Burton Library to register for classes. Following registration, students will tour the campus. New students will be able to acquire their student IDs and parking permits while on the tour. Students should bring a photo ID and their license tag number with them to Orientation.
Students are encouraged to arrive promptly at 8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m.
New students who have questions about their admissions status should contact the Office of Admissions at [email protected] or 601-635-6207.
