Edgecombe Community College is one of the 58 colleges that make up the North Carolina Community College System. The System was approved by the General Assembly of North Carolina in 1963 and is provided for in the General Statutes of North Carolina, Chapter 115-A. General supervision of the system falls under the State Board of Community Colleges.
ECC's main campus is located on 120 acres 2.5 miles south of Tarboro and comprises 10 buildings. ECC also operates a campus in the Edgecombe County portion of Rocky Mount. The college's newest structure, the Collision Repair and Refinishing Building, opened on the Tarboro campus in fall 2013. The new 7,000-square-foot building features state-of-the-art equipment including a larger frame rack, a computerized measuring system, vehicle lifts, a dustless sanding system, and a compartmentalized sandblaster. Four vehicle bays and a classroom provide ample space for students to learn the art of vehicle body repair.
Through a wide selection of programs and courses, ECC seeks to improve both the quality of life and the economic outlook of its students and area residents. With classes in subjects from small business management to electrical blueprints, ECC is equipping its students with practical skills that enable them to excel in their careers, homes, and communities. With ECC's flexible scheduling, the success that comes with higher education is a little easier to achieve. Classes for traditional and non-traditional students are available during the day, evening, and online to accommodate individual needs.
