Special Saturday Registration Session Set for August 2 at East Central College

UNION, Mo. - The Student Service Center at East Central College has been bustling with activity this summer.  To accommodate new and returning students, a special Saturday registration session is set for August 2.  Staff will be available from 8 a.m. until 1 p.m.

Fall semester classes begin Wednesday, August 13.

Although the priority deadline for financial aid was July 1, students can still apply for financial aid and wait for disbursement after the start of the fall semester.  In 2013-14, ECC disbursed $17.3 million in financial aid to students through  scholarships, state money, grants, veteran benefits, loans and other sources. Tuition must be paid before classes start, so students are encouraged to utilize our payment plan so they can spread the cost out over several months or until their financial aid is in place.
