We want students to “Begin with the end in mind.” It is to a student’s advantage to complete a certificate or degree while at Essex County College. When students are ready to graduate from Essex and meet with Four-Year Colleges and start applying to Four-Year Colleges, they may contact Shirlgandy Saint Jean, Assistant Director, Career and Transfer Services to get assistance. Ms. Saint Jean organizes workshops with representatives from admissions offices and they provide Essex County College students with information about the four-year college including its admissions process, majors, student events, and campus.
