Veterans

Welcome to SUNY Erie, your new unit. Since opening we’ve had tens of thousands of veterans, reservists, and their dependents enroll in and complete degree and certificate programs. We know that being a military affiliated student beginning your education or returning to the classroom after service can be an adjustment. Our goal is to provide you the structure and support you were accustomed to while serving our Great Nation. Our campus Veterans Services Office can help you navigate the college application process, transfer credit for your military training, utilize your Federal and State benefits, and connect you with success multipliers such as tutoring or adaptive technologies, and community-based organizations to help you be successful.

Let’s get you started

Tutoring

Our focus at SUNY Erie is your success. Assistance is available outside of the classroom if you find yourself struggling. Learning Centers for English and Writing, Math, and Science are offered at all campuses, as is individual and group tutoring in other academic subjects. Individual program support varies based on need and tutor availability. 

Note:  Tutoring is not a substitute for going to class. Tutors are available to support classroom learning and assist with assignments, not teach the course.

Visit the tutoring page on MyECC for current tutoring schedules. If tutoring is not listed for your subject, contact findatutor@ecc.edu for more information.

Information Technology Services

SUNY Erie provides extensive computing resources and support for all students, including more than 60 computer labs, online resources, access to the latest software, and E-mail accounts and Internet access. Current students may access their information through the MyECC portal.

The ITS Service Desk (web or phone) is a resource for general computing questions, computer labs, office technical problems and/or network emergencies. The ITS Service Desk website offers documentation, ITS alerts, a knowledge base and the ability to open up a work-order for technical problems.

Online: ITS Service Desk
Phone: (716) 851-1835 during normal business hours.

Open Computer Labs

Open computing labs on each campus offer: tutorial assistance, technical support, specialized department software, color printers, and scanning capabilities. 

  • A valid SUNY Erie ID card is required for admittance into the labs. 
  • Lab hours vary by campus and location.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)

A laptop is an important part of your academic success at Erie Community College, so we recommend that each student has a personal laptop that meets the requirements for their coursework. Laptops provide flexibility to participate in online courses, access electronic course resources, obtain virtual services and collaborate with your instructor or fellow students while off-campus.  

Students may either bring their own laptops or purchase one, as long as it meets the recommended hardware specifications based on their division of study.
