What Are Joint Admission Agreements?
Joint Admissions Programs provide an opportunity for ECC students to complete a two-year degree at Essex and also be guaranteed admissions to a four-year college. Students must follow a specific course of study and graduate from an eligible program of study at ECC with the required cumulative grade point average (GPA).
Joint Admission Programs have very specific requirements and are not meant for every student. They are generally designed for students who are just beginning their college work and have selected one major and one specific college that they plan to attend. To find out if you are eligible for joint admission the student must complete the Intent to Transfer form available on the website or in the Transfer Center. (Rm. 4100)
Students who do not meet the Joint admission eligibility requirements or who are unsure of their major or choice of four-year colleges or Universities can always continue at ECC and transfer through the traditional transfer.
What Are Dual Admission Agreements?
Dual admission agreements are specialized transfer agreements which offer students who have been denied admission to the four-year college admittance to ECC. These agreements guarantee admission and transfer of credits to the four-year college after completion of ECC degree requirements. While each agreement has slightly different requirements, all agreements require that a student must officially sign up with the four-year college and complete a specific degree program at Essex.
Students who are currently enrolled at ECC or who transfer in from another college are not eligible to participate in the Dual Admission Program.
