When I walked through the doors at ECTC, everything fell into place. Students here feel like they’re part of a community. I stay connected on campus by getting involved in sports and clubs, and I even modeled for an art class.

I can take the same classes here as at a university. I play basketball, am president of the Fishing Club, and plan to run for Student Government. I firmly believe that our college defines our community.

A Great Value

Afraid you can't afford college? Well, you can. With the lowest tuition in Kentucky, financial aid options, and a helping hand to guide you through the process, we have you covered.

For the cost of one year at a university, you could go for two years here. That two-year degree can open up a new career, or complete the first half of your bachelor’s. Ready to learn more?
