ECC Connect for Faculty

ECC Connect Banner





Welcome to ECC Connect! 

El Camino College (ECC) is committed to providing high quality academic and student services support to help students succeed in their educational goals.

ECC Connect is a system designed to provide a central location for students, instructors, counselors, and other support staff to connect and communicate. Research has shown that students who feel connected and supported during their educational experience tend to be more successful academically.

Faculty and staff who participate in ECC Connect may receive notifications via ECC email.
