Creating Opportunities for Diversity in Education (CODE)

Designed to support underrepresented minority and low-income students, CODE provides resources for every aspect of succeeding as a college student.

If you’re feeling a little hesitant about college, CODE is here to help. CODE taps into services across our campuses and the community to make sure new college students — and their families — get a great start at ECTC. Plus, CODE is a great way to connect with other students. You’ll be a part of cohort that supports each other throughout your time at ECTC.

Upcoming Events

CODE’s signature event, held each February for students who will attend ECTC the following fall, explores the basics like the college admissions process and affording college. Throughout the year, CODE provides a variety of workshops and always offers one-on-one support.
