College Prep & High School Programs

  • College Preparatory and High School Programs

  • Advanced Studies

    Advanced Studies courses are taken during the high school day, are taught by the high school teacher, and are identical to the ECC course as described in the College Catalog. The courses cost one-third the cost of ECC's tuition, set by the State University of New York.

    Career and Technical Education

    Career and Technical Education (CTE) focuses on delivering industry based education to students through applied learning. ECC supports CTE programs by participation in Advisory Boards, college credit agreements, and events such as Engineering Days, Tech Wars, and Summer College. High School teachers can schedule campus tours or classroom presentations that highlight ECC’s CTE programs. For more information, contact the Office of Transition Programs at (716) 270-2826 or at

    College Preparatory Programs

    The transition from high school and college can be difficult. ECC helps to make it easier by providing college preparatory classes to help you along the way.

    High School Agreements

    High School Agreements allow students to earn credit at ECC by successfully completing certain high school courses. A student can enroll into a program at ECC with credits already completed in high school. Articulated credit is free of cost and is awarded after the student is accepted at ECC.

    Summer College for HS Students

    Summer High School Programs include a credit bearing Summer College for High School Students and non-credit Summer Camps. The Summer College for High School Students is open to any student who is entering their junior or senior year in high school and is interested in earning college credit and exploring one of the many career areas offered at ECC.
