Catalog Guidelines

The ECC college catalog is published as a resource for enrolled students. It serves as a guide for current students to understand program requirements for ECC certificates or degrees. Prospective students and/or organizations may access this information via elgin.edu/catalog.

Notice of Disclaimer

This catalog is provided for informational purposes only. The college reserves the right to change, modify, or alter all fees, tuition, expenses, and costs of any kind, and further reserves the right to add or delete, without notice, any course or program offering, service, or information in this catalog. It is the responsibility of any student or employee to become familiar with any changes in the catalog.

Choice of Catalog

Choosing the year enrolled or any subsequent-year catalog.

Although academic requirements may change with each edition of the college catalog, students are responsible for the requirements outlined in the catalog in effect at the time of their initial ECC enrollment. Catalogs are valid for 10 years from the date they are published. Students may choose to fulfill the requirements outlined in subsequent editions, but they may not combine requirements from different catalogs. In the case of curriculum changes, instructional deans may make adjustments to a student’s educational plan to meet program requirements. Every effort will be made to coordinate earlier coursework in a way most beneficial to the student to fulfill current requirements. Course substitution forms must be signed by the appropriate instructional dean and submitted to the Records Office. Substitution forms are available at the Advising Center. Students are subject to all policies/regulations in effect during the current academic year. These can be found at elgin.edu/procedures.
