The University Center at Elizabethtown Community and Technical College is a consortium of postsecondary partners that provide high-demand bachelor's and master's degree programs to the Central Kentucky region. The partnership engages universities and colleges to deliver advanced degrees based on student, employer, and community demand. These programs complement ECTC degree options, allowing students to complete their associate degree through ECTC and transfer to a University Center partner institution to complete their bachelor’s degree. While still in the planning stages, the University Center is projected to begin offering baccalaureate programs in 2021.
The University Center is a cost-effective means to increase access to advanced degree programs. The University Center is not a new university, but instead a partnership which encourages collaboration and sharing resources to benefit the students and community.
