The following powerpoints and documents are intended to help you with the Transfer Process a Returning and Graduating student. It is important that you start early because the Transfer process is not a one time event; it starts when you become an Essex County College Student. As a Returning student it is important to plan your academic year at ECC as soon as possible to make sure that you graduate on time and that the classes that you take are transferable. It is okay to change your major while you are at ECC, but you must be mindful that some of your courses might not be applicable to your new major. To make sure that you are on the right track, talk to your academic counselor or the Transfer counselor, Tracy Cooper in Room 4122C. As a Graduating student, along with classes, family and work responsibility, you have to make time to fill out applications and meet deadlines. It might seem impossible at first, but it can be done if you start early, create concrete and flexible deadlines and do not procrastinate.
