Admissions & Enrollment Checklist

  1. APPLY: Complete and submit an Application for Admission.
  2. FINANCIAL AID: If you are in need of financial aid, it is VERY important that you apply as soon as you consider college as the process varies per individual and could take weeks to complete. To begin, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid  (FAFSA) online by first signing up for a pin at and then visiting to complete the application. Be sure to include our school code:  007275. Completing the FAFSA online is just the first step in requesting federal aid. You will receive mail correspondence from the EGCC Financial Aid Department once we are notified of your federal application. It is important to watch for the mailed correspondence as it notifies you of your financial aid status and whether we require additional verification forms before any possible aid is granted.  Click here for more Financial Aid information.
  3. PROOF OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATION OR EQUIVALENT: You must request your official high school transcript or GED transcript be sent to the address below directly from the granting institution as proof of high school graduation or equivalency if you would like to receive financial aid, enroll in more than 30 credit hours and/or declare a degree or certificate as your major: (not required for Transients, PSEO or High School Dual Enrollment) :
