Fall Registration August 6 -7, classes start August 18

Elizabethtown Community and Technical College (ECTC) is the most convenient and affordable college opportunity for students who still haven’t registered for classes this Fall. It’s not too late to apply and enroll in college classes, which start August 18, 2014.

ECTC offers 30 programs, including transfer degrees and career preparation. The college's Go2Transfer program allows for easy transfer of credits to four-year universities with its Associate in Arts and Associate in Science Degrees. Its Go2Work program allows students to earn industry-leading credentials in high-wage, high-demand fields in two years or less.

According to the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority, students who attend community and technical colleges in Kentucky save more than $7,000 a year. ECTC offers convenient campus locations in Elizabethtown, Fort Knox, Leitchfield, Springfield, and online course options.

By attending ECTC, students receive a great education without getting weighed down in debt. With tuition set at $147 per credit in the fall, ECTC has the lowest tuition of any college or university in the state. Students pay less than half of what they would pay at four-year institutions. For students seeking to transfer, ECTC offers a variety of transfer scholarships to four-year institutions across the state.

"For many students, the most significant barrier in their pursuit of a college education is affordability," said Dr. Thelma White, ECTC President/CEO. "We have worked diligently to keep our cost low and our standards high, while focusing on student access, retention and success."

ECTC will hold registration for the Fall semester on August 6 and 7. Students can complete their applications online at Financial aid is still available to those who are eligible, but it’s important to complete the federal financial aid application, FAFSA, as soon as possible.
