Adult Learners

Not everyone chooses to go to college right after high school, and that's OK. If you are an adult thinking about getting your degree, you'll be in good company at Ellsworth: roughly 12 percent of our student body is age 23 or older!

Although adult students often have more family, financial, and work responsibilities than traditional students, your college degree is closer than you think! Your support system at ECC, including your advisor, will work closely with you to ensure your academic and professional goals are met. Plus, our Non-Traditional Student Group is a great way for adult students to get to know each other and share advice and ideas!

Adult Learner Admissions Process

  1. Apply!
  2. Share your transcripts – you can send your official high school transcripts or other college transcripts to the ECC Admissions Office.
  3. Submit your ACT or ACCUPLACER scores (if available).
